The APC interface uses an onClick javascript event to submit changes to control the power outlets - most annoying if you would like to stay in a shell, but there isn't anything to do except ask them to put in a real html form submit button.

I am sure many of their (inadvertent) end users are unix admins in ISP colos who find they can't control the unit unless they go to a javascript browser.

Completely unnecessary, as the interface is dead simple otherwise; it toggles the device state with option values. Allowing a real form submit would enable scriptable control for admins.
