Quite a common problem, one which can't be solved by PHP, as the redirect command works by modifying the header - and you can't modify the header any more after you wrote a single line of HTML output (such as <body> and <noscript> in your example).

You need to be a little tricky for automatic redirects - the issue and a workaround is very well described over at http://www.rocket99.com/jscript/jsdetect.html. The core part of it is attached to this post.
<HTML> 
<HEAD> 
  <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript"> 
  <!-- 
      window.location = "jsenabled.php" 
  //-->
  </SCRIPT> 
  <META HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" CONTENT="1; URL=/jsdisabled.php"> 
</HEAD>
 
<BODY> 
   <A HREF=/jsdisabled.php><IMG SRC=images/giantcoLogo.gif HEIGHT=60 WIDTH=120 BORDER=0 ALT="GiantCo Home Page"></A> 
</BODY> 
</HTML>
