What would be really neat if it happened is if Tim Burnersley went and did a class action suit on all javascript using websites requiring specific performance where those sites had to remove permanently all html since they had made his html inaccessible by using their javascript and if he ultimately won in court all of ecommerce on the internet would be seriously threatened. Now, we all know none of that is ever going to happen but I think it would be seriously neat if all of it did happen.

(Off topic)

People need to stop with this "We're sorry, you need to enable
Javascript to view this" malarkey.  It strikes me as lazy programming
and I don't know why web designers can't generate this stuff server-side
when it's just a blog or info page that I'm trying to view.

I don't expect to be able to use an app such as Google Maps in Lynx.
But a news article or the info page about a company - I should
absolutely be able to view that in Lynx.

As far as I can tell, every web site built in Wix is completely blank
to a non-JavaScript browser.  Here's a piece of irony:


It's allegedly a blog post entitled "The Story of Making Wix Accessible".
It is of course completely blank in a non-JavaScript browser (Lynx shows
a couple of useless links but apart from that it's blank).

(Sorry for the interruption, normal programming resumes shortly)
