Umm, that sounds like the only feasible way to do so... unless you can
get your site design to work so that it doesn't really matter if you
have javascript on or not... then you wouldn't need to. :P

If you were using a scripting language/parser, you could theoretically
set a variable, then use javascript afterward to set it as something
else, so for example you could start with $js=0; then have the
javascript set $js as 1... then use that... or summat
