We have 1 or 2 clients that have js disabled because of "security"
Also, I very often use Lynx (the text browser, not the game :) ) to browse
the web.

Can someone point me to hardware that is still in active use that can't 
handle javascript?

Similarly, can someone point me to a company that specifically disables
javascript as 'corporate policy'?  Back in 96-97, the 'no javascript' 
argument held, and probably holds today some if you're targetting 
handhelds and other 'non standard' devices.  But if someone specifically
disables Javascript these days, a good portion of their web experience 
will not be as robust as it would otherwise be, and they probably won't 
notice that using your site is any worse than any other site.

IMO, it's now like targetting only websafe colors because some people 
might only browse in 256 colors.  If they do that, about 80% of the 
web's content will look like crap anyway, and they won't specifically 
think my stuff looks all that much worse than anyone else's.
