Answering to myself...

Say Html code is:
<button id="a_button" type="submit" onclick="a_func()">text</button>

document.getElementById( "submit" ).click();
will not work, whereas the click event works fine on a <input>

Short answer:
Safari 2.0 doesn't implement Javascript method click() on <button>
