One thing to keep in mind about Reset buttons.  I believe, if I remember 
correctly, the Reset button was designed for very old systems that you 
couldn't backtrack if you mistyped a form field value.  This is very rarely 
the case any longer.  I've found that Reset buttons tend to get in the way 
(I can't tell you how many times I meant to click "Submit".) unless there 
is prior information, such as an editing information form.
