We do use industrial-strength web frameworks, mostly Django.  To the
extent they support the "string-of-letters-and-digits standard", we
will certainly take advantage of those capabilities.  Javascript-
disabled, several of us are definitely in favor and know how to do it.

If that's not good enough, "detailed advice, and better yet designs
and patches, welcome!"  Sorry, but that's the reality in a volunteer

I'm willing to do it for money (hourly rate negotiable) :-), but the
LOC per hour would be ruinously low because I am not a spectacularly
fast programmer to start with and know nothing about the standard
mentioned.  Other project members tend to be faster, with less spare
time, and quite likely about the same amount of knowledge of the
relevant standards (standards that don't start with "RFC" are
generally not on our required reading lists).

Please keep the details coming.  We care, we just don't have the
cycles to do it ourselves without help.
