That's why I said "may be". A pure CGI web site is pretty annoying
unless it's really brilliantly done. However, I prefer to see JS
restricted to actual interaction, instead of making it critical to the
basic layout. A lot of web sites these days load nothing but a script
that goes and loads everything else, while you gaze at a splash
screen. IMO that's unideal.

However, even that is probably a losing battle. :(
