That was my opinion too until reading this thread, I never thought
about the non-blank form. Thanks.

Therefore in this case, the reset button should be at the top (labelled
with an explanation saying "if you want to get the form back to how it
was before you started changing it click here") and not at the bottom
next the submit button where the user can easily click it by mistake
instead of the submit button.
