How about a redirect in the noscripts section of the new pages?

Suddenly, I feel a bit dim... how would that work?

Wouldn't it be simplest to keep the old pages in place, and put a js redirect on the top of them to the new js forms? Only js enabled visitors would execute the redirect, and they would go to the js pages, where you want them.

Simpler, yes, but what's the status of a js redirect re spiders? Since we're talking approx. 5% of the traffic, I was thinking it would be more conservative from an SEO perspective to keep the new pages as primary with the old as secondary using a manual "Our js-free cart is here [click]" in <noscript>. Basically, I guess I just don't like redirecting 95% of the traffic and keeping 5% on the straight path.

I am curious , what were you doing with the submit button that would not let you use <nifty custom submit button graphics>. I have read this thread several times and it sound like an interesting challenge I am just not sure what it is your tring to do.

Thanks for responding, I have just done the same thing with my shopping cart(got rid of all the JS) and was getting ready to see if I could spice it up for the JS enabled. It seems like there should be a way. If I figure something out I will post back.
