Isn't ghost type not very effective on steel?

This website says it does normal damage, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't.

Ah yes it does, but only in generations before six. In the new X and Y games coming out this Saturday Steel types will no longer resist Dark or Ghost type moves; however they will gain a resistance to Fairy types, the new type introduced in Kalos.

As of X and Y, they have changed the resistances of steel, along with the new fairy type. Im pretty sure that steel lost its resistance to ghost when that had happened.
