[thelist] Submit, Using Formatted Text

Would an anchor tag qualify for the formatted text as you need it.  You
could put anything you'd like within the anchor tag, so making it
international should not be too tough.  Make sure you do not have an element
named submit or this may not work.  Here's some code:

<form method="post" action="http://www.evolt.org" name="myform">
  <input type="text">

  <a href="/" onclick="submit(); return false;">Submit</a>

>From my quick testing, NN 4.7 requires the name attribute on the form to
make this work.

Hopefully this helps.
