I normally have JavaScript disabled for all sites (using the NoScript extension to Firefox), and would not normally re-enable it for a public Internet wiki site. Currently on ~twiki4 site, if I use the Edit link with JavaScript disabled, I go into the WYSIWYG editor (or at least I get a long WYSIWYG help page expanded at bottom of page, after the Save button). However, in other respects I seem to be in raw edit mode, which makes sense.

So... If there is some way of not showing the WYSIWYG help when JavaScript is disabled, that would be preferable.

This may seem like a corner case but quite a lot of people surf using NoScript these days, since JavaScript is such a common vector for browser and plugin security exploits. As this blog post on NoScript points out, sites where people can upload their own content, such as TWiki, are particularly vulnerable.
