Kelly why don't you just get a browser that supports Javascript?

I'm not sure if I like others to fumble with my creations, I'd need to be
sure they would be working correct and that I was able to change things.
Remember that if something is wrong or does not work, that people will come
to me asking for help (or complaining). Since only few sites allow
CGI-scripting, the possibilities for me to maintain anything like that are
small. If I'm right Dave's computer doesn't allow them, am I right there
David? (I didn't try it yet)

I won't force people getting newer browsers, and usually try to make
everything accessable for older browsers, but I think if people want more,
they should also do a little effort themselves in getting it.
I wonder how non-fill-out-form-browsers are able to sent some output to a
server to get back the answer. Well I could imagine that one would type an
URL with ?+5+and+zoom at the end, but that wouldn't make things easier.
So are CGI-scripts a solution here? Should I add ASCII-images because maybe
some browser don't show gif or jpg-images?
Really, in one year every browser has Java-script in it.
