If it's not the latest in a line (say it's WD2 from five years ago that has actively been replaced by WDs 3-5, LCs 1-7, and we're now in CR) it should probably not change its style but perhaps prominently indicate that it's not the latest version.

I'd also say that relying on JavaScript for important information
is probably not the best idea ever. If it's important, it should
be in the document's content.
