<form name="thisform" action="whatever" method="post">
	... your form elements ...
<a href="javascript:;" onclick="thisform.submit();">Submit Form</a>

The HREF doesn't need to be inside the form, but it can be anywhere on the page.

Subject: [thelist] Link to cause POST request

Hello All,

Is it possible to have a form whose submit is invoked
by pressing on a link? I know I could <input
type="image" name="submit"... and convert the link
into image to achieve this result but was looking for
a cleaner solution that does not involves images or
submit buttons to generate a POST request. Perhaps
this can be done with JavaScript?

Thanks a lot for your help,
