> GIVE ALL USERS ACCESS

So it says, anyway. So I was most amused to discover I couldn't access the site using Lynx. :)

I fail to see much (if any) advantage in insisting on Javascript support to be able to navigate a site. It certainly seems to go against the spirit of what some of the book is saying.

(apologies for the anonymity: it's because I've misplaced my password, not because I'm afraid of reprisals from the author :)
