You could include a style sheet for non-JS visitors. Especially
or more commonly seen when people hide elements by default and reveal
them using JS (bad practice I know but prevents potential flicker and
Perhaps some layouts don't make sense when JS isn't available, so a
different layout entirely is desired. Authors may prefer this to
keeping all the JS and non-JS version styles in one style sheet and
class name switching to indicate JS is available.
