Well, black-boxed - I would assume that someone expects something from a
script that isn't running to make this assumption. So, I would review the
test and the web-page in firebug and see what was added since the script
was first created. Also, I wouldn't assume from start that this requires
javascript in jmeter, since is probably something that comes in
body/headers as false (or is inexistent) and is returned as it equals true
in headers/body, anything extremely simplistic.

Btw, some sites had this in the basic HTML -> if you were missing flash
player or blocked javascript with addons / browser settings - they had a
default text or picture saying you need to enable whatever was needed for
their site. If the site was slow enough you could see those - even if it
did eventually load ok. In jmeter, of course, you only got that in the
HTML. Just something I wanted to throw in there, not sure if it is the case.
