Don't forget the many accessibility issues AJAX has.
There's more to "graceful degradation" than making it work without
which *do not inform the user that that particular element has
altered*. So whilst it works correctly, it appears to the user as if
One example of such a client is a screenreader, which parses JS quite
well, and doesn't watch for updated elements. So if you have a link,
or a submit button, and your screenreader user clicks it, chances are
they won't notice the change.
Similarly expand/contract hide/show DOM scripting; passes by.
No way around this.
Now, if your target audience is narrow, then you can probably get away
with this. Alternatively, if your application is so reliant on JS -
for instance, the Google Apps - yeah, you can get away with it. But a
great many developers shouldn't be walling off potential client-base
because of their choice of client.
Just a quick reminder ;)
