I (and others) have used the <noscript> tag quite a bit for displaying
(what alot of people seem to call) "rich media" (for some reason) and
having gracefull fall backs. Basically, the code looks something like
<a href="..."><img src="..." /></a>
"rich media". If that doesn't work, then we try and use the iframe.
If that doesn't work (because the browser is too old) then we try and
display the image.
(It would probably be nice if there was a "noimage" tag, for text
browser... but there isn't.)
