There's no javascript involved in the loadstone download process. It even 
works with lynx that has no java support at all. If you're seeing javascript 
on that page can you tell us where or what problem the form was causing with 
your browser?
I do think our site should work with all browsers or at least degrade 
gracefully if something truely can't be done.
