    Script without style?

    While Web Developer extension of FF allows to enable/disable features at will in any combination, can anyone think of a real life situation where a user would have CSS disabled and scripting enabled for reasons other than "Gee, lets see what happens if...."

    An old browser perhaps.

    Take Netscape 4 for example, if you include the .css file it won't be able to use it, however there is no way to hide JavaScript from it (that I know of).

    Let me clarify: "DOM Compliant Scripting"
    if(document.getElementById) takes care of older browsers...

    I was thinking about it, Dave.
    First do we know of such browser?
    Second, even in theory, how would such browser handle the following statement:
    element.style.display = 'none';
    Will or should it be ignored because the script attempts to modify style property that is not supported (we are talking about a browser that does not support CSS) or remove that element from the flow ???

    There's an interesting list here: http://66.102.9.104/search?q=cache:M...+support&hl=en the only one which appears to support javascript is kfm, but I'm still trying to find a download location. (Does it still exist?)

    The other idea I had was opera. Some people browse with styles turned off - if the color scheme is awful...
