The basic principle is to strip out everything from the pages except the
actual content you want to get across, all java should not be in the file
taking up valuable space. IE a spider may only get as far as reading your
Jscript and not actually get to the content of your site. 

The same principle is true of CSS/XHTML remove all mark up from the content
to make the pages lightweight and portable. The layout can then be applied
to match the device you are viewing on, the side effect being light pages
the engines can spider efficiently.

It might be worth mentioning that both the BBC and SKY news sites make
extensive use of inline javascript.
