True, but it's not "the most ordinary way" anymore. I'd say that
bookmarking is equivalent to inserting the inhibit-startup-message
magic in one's .emacs.

But he only can if he has it. Does this mean that the proprietor of
the website must offer the server-side parts of the software for
download, too? (Because the client-side scripts in the page that is
served may be compiled from bits and pieces that are separate on the
serverside, such that the page served is not the preferred form for
making modifications to the scripts).
