I've recently come across the <NOSCRIPT> tag as a means of presenting a HTML version of a page. Anyone have further information or experience in its use?

Hi Glengara, I have never used it but it seem like a very good way to serve some navigation devices or other elements to browsers without JS. A good place to start would be the W3 Consortium [w3.org].

Thanks for the tip MacGuru! Anyone used it to enable a submission toY! on a site with aJS nav -bar?

Thank God someone's aware of it! NFFC, without giving away any trade secrets,is this your First Time, and what did you use before?

From what I've been able to find out, it seems I can construct a basic sponge cake (text link nav-bar), put the icing on it (JS nav-bar), and be able to offer my guests a slice of their choice?

I'm also dreaming that by inserting a link within the tags you can create an alternative to a JS re-direct; but I've just heard the alarm go off.

Did this ever work out NFFC? Finished, or written off and forgotten?

The build stage is finished, it will hit the directories next week and the good SE's can come and find it if they wish.

>is this your First Time,

lol, first time I have built a fully functioning "alternative" site with <noscript>

>and what did you use before?

Normally the sites are my own or I build them from scratch, never had the urge to use JS navigation before, just nice clean HTML.

Part of my thinking too, we will see.

Glengara,

I use a lot of JavaScript feeds on my site and also believe in making web sites accessible for the visually impaired. Many accessibility programs disable scripts so that Braille Interpreters and Speech Synthesizers can read the page. (Even many non-impaired people disabled scripts out of fear of viruses.) I use the <NOSCRIPT></NOSCRIPT> to provide alternate information such as a link to an accessible HTML page which contains the same information that the script was feeding into the page. If you don't want to provide an alternate page, you can simple use <NOSCRIPT>This pages utilizes JavaScript</NOSCRIPT> or <NOSCRIPT>Your browser must be JavaScript Enabled to view this information</NOSCRIPT> It's better than just a blank space. :-)

Glengara,

I recieved and OK from Yahoo France (still waiting for Y! Canada Franšais) for a site using the <NOSCRIPT> tag in the java navigation menu. Still free (crossing fingers) French Y! is some kind of test for the English version.

The site uses frames, top java navigation is replaced by (rhather ugly) text columns sub menues. We also have a main page that was supposed to open product descriptions in form of pop-ups using "target_blank" in the <NOSCRIPT> tag.

The English version is sheduled to be online in 2 weeks, I have to tell the bad news [webmasterworld.com] to my client today. I will keep in touch for Y! business express decision.

Thanks for pointing out the <NOSCRIPT> alternative to JS redirect.
