Threaded View
Hi, i was wondering if this was possible. I would like to create a
plain vanilla text button, example:


When somebody clicks on the word submit, it will behave just like a
normal html submit button. Is this possible?
If it is, how do i go about creating it? Can you guys give me some
links or hints where i can research on this topic.

Thanks for all your help.

Stop wanting that. Problem solved.

For an explanation, see e.g.
mistake #3.

No, but you can do a lot of harm trying to achieve it.

I would suggest using a normal submit button, but using css to make it look
like vanilla text. Something like:

    <style type="text/css">
        input.text {
        border: 0;
        background-color: white;
    <form method="post" action="">
        <input class="text" name="Button1" type="button" value="button">

an alternative approach would be to use text or an href and use JavaScript
to run it into a submit button, but much as I like and use JavaScript its
probably better avoided if there is a way of doing it without JavaScript.

Hope this helps.
