Subject Re: Re: Re: Why does <html:submit> work differently than <html:link action="">?

Hi Michael,

i agree, what i'm attempting is kindof goofy.
i'm trying to submit a form using a hyper-link instead of a submit
button.  i have three links on the page that perform similar but
different actions.  each link sets a value in a hidden field that
should be picked up by the actionform upon submission and then passed
to my action.
you are right, hyperlinks do not submit forms like submit buttons. :)
that's why i was attempting to submit the form using javascript.
if i was 'allowed' to use separate submit buttons i would do that.  or
even radio buttons and a single submit button.  but i was asked to use

i'll try to remember not to submit html without wrapping it in <pre>
tags.  sorry about that. :)  and thanks for your reply.
