it should cascade gracefully I would not assume any one has anything more 
than a basic text browser, and very basic screen reader.  remember this 
is a WORLD wide web and in third world countries an old apple II might 
be the latest tech avaliable.

remember except in closed systems the system used MUST be browser neutral, 
as well as adaptive neutral.   the person visiting may be using an Unix 
system with eMACspeak one must never assume any particular piece of 
equipment or software.   makes it much harder but also makes it more 
usable.
