Javascript and security

Hi list.
My first posting.

I have a question about priority one checkpoint 6.3 -
Ensure that pages are usable when scripts, applets, or other programmatic
objects are turned off or not supported. If this is not possible, provide
equivalent information on an alternative accessible page.

Keeping this in mind, how are security issues dealt with without javascript?
An example of such javascript usage would be logging out from an internet
banking page where it's in the security interests of the user to be logged
out after finishing their tasks.
The problem is compounded by the fact that banks typically have extremely
rigorous security standards. Hence, any solution would have to be
technically robust.

Does anyone have any information or links pertaining to this subject?

Please reply to me and I'll summarise for the list.

Thanks for your help.
