Please minimize JS code in GNU web pages, and make sure the pages work
fully even if JS is disabled.

Everything written in JS is a program, and programs should be free.
All web sites should put free licenses on their JS code, if any.  See
http://gnu.org/philosophy/javascript-trap.html.  The sites should also
work with JS disabled.

Thus, if there is any JS code in a GNU web page, it should carry a
free license, and that license should be presented in a way that
LibreJS can recognize.

CSS is not really a programming language.  Yes, someone found a way to
make it Turing-complete, but CSS in ordinary use only specifies
format parameters.

Ordinary use of CSS in GNU web pages is not an ethical issue, but
please keep in mind that some browsers don't process CSS, so please
make sure your pages are readable and clear without the CSS.

I don't know what WOFF is.
