Found this when I unhide a screen and a half of messages:
This form does not appear to contain a submit control so that the form data can be submitted in the normal way. Consider using an "input" element with type="submit" or type="image" or a "button" element with type="submit".
Question: is a Javascript submitted form considered "normal?

I don't think I have a submit button on any of my websites. They all use a link with Javascript to submit.

For the purposes of that message it does not include JavaScript. I've added " (without JavaScript)" to the message:
