However, it's entirely possible for a site administrator to
quickly add the (:input button:) and "onclick" capabilities
if they want it and are willing to accept the security risks
and other difficulties of 'onclick'.  

In local/config.php:

    ##  identify the attributes we allow in input tags (adds 'onclick'
    ##  to default set)
    $InputAttrs = array('name', 'value', 'id', 'class', 'rows', 'cols',
      'size', 'maxlength', 'action', 'method', 'accesskey',
      'checked', 'disabled', 'readonly', 'enctype', 'src', 'alt',

    ##  add (:input button ...:)
    $InputTags['button'][':html'] = "<input type='button' \$InputFormArgs />";
    $InputTags['button']['class'] = 'inputbutton';
