I use Struts Menu.  It pulls text from a config file and renders a tabbed
menu at the top of my page with CSS.  It doesn't render submit buttons, it
renders hyperlinks.  "Cannot be done" really isn't in my vocabulary-- 
anything it possible given enough time, money and motivation. ;)

But in this case, the first issue that comes to mind is that the tabbed
menus are in a separate Tile from the one that contains the <html-el:form>
tags.  For submit buttons to work, they'd have to be *within* the form tags,
and AFAIK you can't split the form across multiple Tiles.

While I appreciate that you've spent a lot of time working on your elegant
solution, in this case the OP doesn't even appear to need JavaScript *or* a
form, much less buttons on it.

I'm going to bow out of this now-- you have your solution, I have mine, both
of them work, and the OP can choose one of the many ideas that have been
thrown out there and be on his way.
