[thelist] Form Processing Help, Please

Hi evolters-

We have a page from which we are removing all graphics. There is a form on 
this page. The existing page has three images as inputs to the form, each 
with a different value. ex: 

<input type="img" name="edit" value="EQUITY" src="edit.gif" alt="edit">

the programmer has replaced this with:

<input type="submit" name="edit" value="EQUITY">

as a first attempt to remove the graphics from the form.

Problem is, this breaks the form. It no longer works. My belief is that 
something different happens when a web server (in this case IIS4) processes 
a click on an image input vs. a submit input, since the name and value of 
the inputs are the same. ANyone know for sure? 

Another list has suggested that the form processor is looking for edit.x 
and edit.y... Could this be a problem as well?

We are racking our brains trying to figure out if we can work this from the 
HTML side rather than having to get into the backend. If anyone has any 
suggestions, please help me out!
