Yeah, that's probably a good point. Hadn't thought about that much.

An alternative could be to have the javascript be an overlay popup; that
is, the original content remains on the page, but the selection menu
just shows over that content. That way it's obvious that the back button
will remove page in the back.

There would not be much need to have it on the "releases" page at that
point anymore though. I'm thinking it might make more sense to have it
behind the "Download debian" button on the intro page, and have the js
live there instead.

I'll look at that this weekend.

Could you people please use IRC like normal people?!?
