[Proteopedia] Redirect when Java is missing?

Thanks Angel, we implemented this solution and now you can browse Proteopedia without Java, although you will be missing out on the most important part of Proteopedia: the interaction with 3D molecules.

If PP is using Jmol.js, the place of the JmolApplet will be automatically filles with a yellow 
notice advising to install Java.
When I first disabled Java in my browser yesterday, while displaying a non-home page in 
PP, I'd say that I saw that yellow box in the same page I had. It was quickly replaced by the 
non-Java Main Page, which is the only one I could see thereafter, no matter where  tried to 

Oh yes, I've just seen the same today, and in a different browser: the page initially loads 
with the yellow notice provided by Jmol.js, then it is replaced by the Main_Page_Static

So, just removing the redirect would preserve the non-Java content in pages.
If you want, you can customize the yellow note to say something more PP-specific just by 
overridng the relevant function in Jmol.js. I've done it before to give a message in Spanish. 
The procedure is briefly documented inside Jmol.js (I can give help if you need it).
