provide some fall back content if it isn't.
From the examples of noscript content we find on the Web, most contain
good that it's mentioned for backwards compatibility, but it doesn't really
serve a useful purpose, and developers should be discouraged from using it.
In addition, there's no guarantee that noscript will be triggered. If scripting is disabled via firewall protection (common with many companies), rather than being disabled in the browser, noscript is not triggered, and the necessary "fallback" content is not made available. Progressive enhancement works regardless of the circumstances disabling scripting; noscript, does not.
