Ah yes, but many consider JavaScript to be a potential
security vulnerability (and some turn it off because
they can't stand pop-up windows).  I've never heard such
things about CSS.  At any rate, I can't think of a
single site that has been inaccessible because a browser
did not support css (which mostly controls formatting).
But, I have encountered many sites that are completely
inaccessible for browsers without JS on/availible.

I'm not going to suggest doing one thing or another.
Just choose what is best for your intended audience.
