> This should work fine. What solutions do youh ave to this?

The solution my boss came up with and which we are implementing is to make
the <form> on the Login page submitted via JavaScript. That way users
without JavaScript will never be able to enter the system.

We will also put a message in the <noscript> tag for such users with a link
to a page explaining how to rectify the situation.

The sites I have worked on, except this one, have always been accessible for
users without JavaScript, so I never used the <noscript> tag. This site
REQUIRES JavaScript and we have yet (to my knowledge) to have a user attempt
to access it with JS disabled, so we never before used the <noscript> tag.
We are putting it in now as a precaution, as our user base is growing.

Anyhow, I have never used the <noscript> tag so I actually forgot all about
it. :)
