    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:


    <a href="mailto:root@url.co.uk?subject=membership">
    <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 root@url.co.uk 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 thanks

    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.
