[LINK] another pesky script issue

Most likely because the people who are writing the application don't
have sufficient admin access over the server to implement a server
level redirect.

If I switch off JavaScript (in Firefox 3.0.x), I just get a response
that contains:

<body onload="window.self.location.replace('http://www.daffa.gov.au/aqis');">

That is, there is no <noscript> block, just an (apparently) blank page.
