I tried to open the demo page with javascript disabled and could not navigate the page.

Is gracefull degradation something that will be available in the final product?

Hi Mathias,

The Kendo demo site uses AJAX navigation and some of its containers are rendered with a display:none style, so the demos currently can't work with Javascript turned off. We will try to workaround this.

However, the widgets themeselves have graceful degradation capabilities, e.g. they can fall back to <input>, <select>, <ul> or <table> elements, depending on the widget. However, this is possible if you are not using load on demand, i.e. the generic HTML element (<select>, <table>, etc) is populated beforehand. One widget that does not degrade gracefully and cannot work without Javascript is the Chart.
