saw that too if it's not a type-o. i think its a reference to six also " After the sixth installment of the series,"

six is divisible by 18 and 36
sixteen is divisible by 8
6 and 8 are divisible by 24
i think there are supposed to be 24 buttons pushed by the end, that would be a string of six more buttons

but i'm just thinking out loud it could just be a type-o

That would explain the "vertically labeled" bit I was confused about.

It's a wedge shape, so that's the way it would look.

And yet the plot says there were 16 installments. Typo, Y-san?

Yeah, something weird happened with the copy-pasting. Part got repeated. Here:

(1,0,0), (0,1,0), (0,1,0), (0,1,0), (0,1,0), (0,0,0), (0,0,0), (1,1,1), (1,1,1), (0,0,0), (0,1,0), (0,0,0), (0,1,0), (0,0,0), (1,0,0), (0,0,1), (1,1,1), (0,0,0)

I think this is probably more color related than xyz axis related. I think the triplets are RGB values of some sort. So the 5 buttons correspond to red (1,0,0), green (0,1,0), blue (0,0,1), white (1,1,1) and black (0,0,0). I don't have much HTML development experience, but I think the reference to "style" refers to CSS style sheets and how colors are referenced in them. I looked up "cornflower blue" and it is one of the named colors that should be known by all browsers. It's hex value is #6495ED. (Interestingly, the blue color value used to show the coordinates is not cornflower blue, but the value #6699cc). Anyway, my thinking is that since the room is cornflower blue and the sphere is reflecting that color, I think we need to figure out how the coded sequence is related to that specific color.

Well, following this, I see Cornflower Blue as (100,149,237) and I'm not sure how it relates here.

However, I don't think this is the correct path, since any of the given sets of numbers all give you the color black in hex code.
Here:
http://www.color-hex.com/color/010000
http://www.color-hex.com/color/000100
http://www.color-hex.com/color/000000
http://www.color-hex.com/color/010101

I'm still think about ordered trios, here, since every one of those sets of numbers looks exactly like they were plotted on a graph.

The sphere also suggests 3 dimensions.

I tried to use hex code on a previous puzzle and got this response

The agents continued to concentrate. A few of them thought it might have to do with hex values.

"Perhaps," Father responded. "But the Witch has no particular interest in the computational. She likes to play."

And yet she used a hexcode in another previous puzzle, so the quoted clue probably had more to do with that specific puzzle than all of them.

two thoughts i had were spherical coordinate system and binary code

but i can't get binary code to work and not really sure how to use a spherical coordinate system

She was bemused at the latest pack of new toys Father had sent to sniff around her gateway. They seemed clever enough, and they had gotten past the first few rooms, true, but they would never get past this room. Creatures like them, so entrenched in the computational, would never be able to see the beauty around them, to understand it and its import. No, this was why she was what she was, why she must be what she must be and must do what she must do. Father had failed before, and here he would fail once more.
