Accessible alternative to NOSCRIPT

Over the past few years, JavaScript has evolved from a website ‘add-on’ (primarily for non-critical features like animations) to a requirement for use. Many sites still rely on the tried and true ‘noscript’ tag for this purpose, unfortunately, it’s not always practical or accessible to do so.

A better way would be to use standard markup in the page, but use the scripting to ‘hide’ the content you don’t want users with JavaScript enabled to see.

This can be taken to great lengths, but here’s a very simplified example:
<div id=”noscript”>Please enable JavaScript to use this feature.</div>
<script type=”text/javascript”>
var obj = document.getElementById(‘noscript’);
obj.style.display=’none’;
</script>
