It's probably true that most users that land on the
"unabletodetectflash.html" page will have ended up there because they
have manually disabled JavaScript. So you could safely put a notice
like "JavaScript Not Available--Please enable JavaScript in your
browser, or visit...etc.". That way, you address the majority
specifically, while also giving less common browsers accurate
information about what's going on. I felt the
"unabletodetectflash.html" page was really important for old or
uncommon browsers. We're used to a high level of technology in North
America, Europe, Asia etc, but some parts of the world have a much
slower adoption rate...

You can't really use JavaScript to detect JavaScript (like you can't
turn the light on so you can find the light switch...). I think you're
pretty much stuck with putting alternative content either on your
javascript page or on a different page you link to with META.

Anyone else have ideas?
