Actually the last time I tried to turn off Javascript in Netscape
Communicator 4.51/U.S (LinuxELF2.0 i386 version) it did not turn off.

Maybe it works in a few more cases than before, but it's definitely not
100%.  I think it turns itself on again if you visit a page with a style
sheet or some such nonsense (I've forgotten where I tested it).  In any
case I backed down to Navigator 4.08 again....

Seems pretty silly that Javascript is used to parse the preferences.js
file, and then would include lines such as:

	user_pref("javascript.allow.mailnews", false);
	user_pref("javascript.enabled", false);

Just exactly when is it not enabled?  ;-)
