Form submission button (FP5.0? (XP, I think))
A friend of mine has just built herself a new website for her club which includes an online form to fill in for membership, which works perfectly in IE, but goes peculiar in Firefox - she is an online friend (much as most of you are!) and I haven't actually seen the site on her machine, only live on the net. From the view source page, the submission button at the end of the form currently looks like this:
<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit"></a>
which seems, to me, to be the correct code wrapped around with a mailto code - and therefore unsurprisingly, IE submits, while Firefox creates an email to email@example.com with a subject line of 'membership' (url replaces real address), ignoring the submit button.
Am I reading this correctly, and the mailto code pair is superfluous? Or does anyone know what exactly this code should say?
Many thanksBeryl M

I don't know what is supposed to happen when a browser encounters this set of tags, but removing the anchor (A) tag does seem like the best first step to take in trying to fix this.
