Subject [jira] Created: (MYFACES-1803) <noscript> elements should be rendered for better WAI support

<noscript> elements should be rendered for better WAI support

                 Key: MYFACES-1803
             Project: MyFaces Core
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: General
    Affects Versions:  1.2.0, 1.1.5
            Reporter: Manfred Geiler
            Assignee: Manfred Geiler
            Priority: Minor

According to the "Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI)" guidelines (
for every <script> element there should also be a <noscript> element.
Although standard JSF apps won't function without Javascript, it is possibly to write accessible
apps if the developer provides alternative paths (outputLinks instead of commandLinks, etc.)
through the application.
Automated web accessibility check tools signal missing <noscript> elements as errors.
For most <script> elements we render in the JSF core now, it might be difficult or even
impossible (eg commandLink) to automatically render alternative code that would work with
scripting disabled. But anyway, we should at least render <noscript> elements that tell
the user why the app does not run in his browser.
