I would say that Javascript is essential for developers who are wanting to develop RIAs (outside of those who are developing Flash or Silverlight solutions). HTML5 helps with this a bit, but HTML is more about structure than presentation.

kaufmed,

I just saw your comment. Sorry. "HTML5 helps with this a bit", I am not sure on what you really mean here.

There are new elements introduced in HTML 5 that make structuring a document a bit easier. There is also the new <canvas> element that will let you, via Javascripts, draw directly to the page with code. Again, HTML is intended more for structure than presentation, so you cannot rely solely on HTML5 to create a RIA.

So if a user disable java script on the browser, then it is pretty much useless, right?

In terms of RIA, probably. You can still provide a useful site with careful thought, you just won't get all of the fancy transitions, slides, fades, etc. when a user doesn't enable Javascript.
