This comes from a discussion on the ACB list.
It seems the JC Penny (http://www.jcpenny.com) website uses a JavaScript
navigation menu with an extensive <noscript> section. This means that when
you use it with Lynx the navigation menu is pretty normal HTML but with IE
and JFW the menu is mostly unusable, of course you can turn off JavaScript
in IE to get the HTML version so the 'letter' of the requirement is met but
for most (many) screen reader users turning on/off JavaScript to see if a
page is accessible is a bit extream.  Any thoughts on this?  Can we reword
the checkpoint to avoid this kind of situation?
