It's not just browsers without css; it's bots, screen readers, print
outs etc. Looking at web page without css gives, at least, an indication
of how well they will cope. Although, in the case of the first two,
having the comment in context might be an improvement.

Possibly, but I imagine it'd be more complicated to write the xsl to do
that than it would be to write the javascript. At least, it would be for
me. Maybe the comments could be written as comments from the start.
