Detect Javascript

Oh-boy, there are still some paranoid people out here who disable javascript. I can relate to their problem, with all that advertisement, surveys and popups, but still com on,..
Well, i happend to like javascript, it helps me to improve usibaity and surveilens of users activity on my site. So i decided to make a landingpage for the unfortinate javascript-hating users. For that purpose i needed a way to discover if the visitors Javascript was disabeled.. But her’s the thing,.. how do you do it clint-side without javascript (c:
Well it is simple, just use the ‘<noscript>’ tag, as far as i know it is supportet by all of the current browsers. Place your markup inside one of those puppies,.. and you can do pretty much everything you want, like displaying a message

<noscript>
	<div>
		<h2>Turn it on</h2>
		<p>I know you have turned it off, yes i am talking about javascript,
                   turn it on plz.., becouse i want you to (O,~).</p>
	</div>
</noscript>

or a redirect, yes it is possible without javascript (c:

<noscript>
	<meta http-equiv="REFRESH" content="0; url=http://mysite.net/turniton.aspx">
</noscript>

So no beef there, don’t hate, spread love ..
