Does it have to be a form button? It might be easier to use some 
stylesheet code to make your link just look like a button.

your link:
<a href="myfile.pdf" class="button">download my file</a>

in your stylesheet:
a.button {
   border: 1px black solid;
   background-color: gray;
   padding: 5px;
   text-decoration: none;
