The NOFRAMES element may contain a NOSCRIPT element. This won't help here, 
of course.

(Some people say that anything that makes it more difficult to use frames 
makes things a little better...)

I guess you could create a Frameset document, with the content that you 
wish to present when scripting is disabled, and with a scripted transfer 
to an address where you have the scripting-enabled version. The problem is 
that the latter might accidentally be accessed by scripting-disabled user 
agents, causing confusion, but this won't be very probable if you don't 
announce the address anywhere and don't link to it, so that the only 
normal way to get there is via scripting.

That would be a _long_ wait.
