There are some things (esp. with Webforms) that are often used in
today's web and done with Scripting. It would be better, if these
things would be possible without Scripting, only declarative with HTML
/ CSS:

1. The german library-catalog "KVK"
(http://www.ubka.uni-karlsruhe.de/kvk.html) uses JavaScript in Forms,
to toggle multiple check-boxes on/off by clicking only one check-box.
In detail: there are inferior check boxes you can toggle on/off. And
superior check-boxes, that toggle on/off a group of other check-boxes,
with just one activation/deactivation of this superior check-box.

2. Often JavaScript is used to expand/collapse parts of a form (e.g.
in Mail-Forms to expand/collaps the CC- and BCC-field.

3. And JavaScript is often used to mark the active text-box (from many
text-boxes) with a colored line around it or something like that (e.g.
in GoogleMail).

It would be fantastic, if future versions of HTML (maybe HTML5) would
allow these things without Scripting, just declarative with HTML /
