This is true, although programs delivered via non-free Javascript are so ubiquitous on the web and the demand for them so high the general practice seems to be just letting the user have this Javascript as it is expected behavior.

I don't think much can be done except trying to push a user toward a js-off experience, but letting them turn it on easily when their website doesn't work. This is far from a comprehensive solution though.

Is this the thread about the handheld device? Talk about getting off-topic! :-P
