and they don't use javascript to do so

i'll concede we don't know TheCounter.com's methodology precisely, and of
course arguing about percentage points is silly at best -- perhaps we could
agree that the non-javascript browser population lies somewhere between
"next to nil (probably less than 1%)" and 12%

david, this is not intended to be confrontational, i'm not directing these
remarks at you personally, rather to the community in general

[and i'm sorry i reacted so harshly at first the other day, but nobody gets
away with calling the aardvark daft  ;o) ]

why would a conscientious developer choose a technique that excludes
people, when a technique that encompasses everyone is marginally, if at
all, more difficult?

example: links & javascripts living together in harmony

nobody's saying "don't use javascript"
