What is the heading as the coWiki code still says:

  // Never use JavaScript for essential functionalities! You may use it
  // for uncritical and superfluous gimmicks.

JavaScript would make the interface feel better for the user, but will be
**extremly fragile** due to browser version changes - and the supported
ECMA/JavaScript versions.

This is one of the points you can trust me, as I wrote JavasSript //magic//
in the end 90ies for intranets, that I until now didn't come across in
access-for-all WWW. Today, it's not only the JavaScript, but the DOM (if
available) handling. But if you have one who can care of it 24/7 ...

My POV is, JavaScript for companies intranets: yes. For a software like
coWiki that should be - in an extreme case - usable on a PDA: No.
