> But that is not how real world web sites are designed.  Typically the
initial spec calls for lots of gimmicks.  This get compromised slightly
when the coders say it is too difficult.  Finally  accessibility gets
bolted on, as an afterthought.  (In the case of intranet applications,
it gets bolted on when a customer demands it.)

But that's not a problem with JavaScript, but with quality assurance and
bad design/development processes. Saying "JavaScript is bad" to stop
misguided developers from doing it wrong is the wrong
approach...demonising the effect, rather than the cause.
