I guess that's where I differ.  The server-side should be the primary, 
not the backup.  Ideally, you'll provide both client-side (for those who 
support it) and server-side (for those who don't or as security for 
those who find a way to "muck" with your client-side version).

But given the choice between one or the other, I will always choose
