degrade gracefully in the absence of javascript

Yes, I browse without javascript enabled and it would be useful to get the bar on top indicate that Askbot works better with javascript enabled, similar to how Stack Overflow does

Added this to our issue tracker as well: (yes we could use the tracker auto-linking too!)

You can find the patch here Instead of hard coding "Askbot", it should be picked from the site name from settings. So Ask Fedora or Ask Sage or whatever it is.

@mether I can add a "appname" in and make use of it in the template. I don't have @Evgeny's opinion on that. I checked other files , for example the footer section, The name askbot is hardcoded there (the one in the copyright section).
