I would like to report this Windows Internet Explorer bug to save other greif. Seems that IE 6 (well, version: 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_gdr.050301-1519 to be specific) doesnât handle the <button> tag very well, especially when it is of type submit.
I have a form that allows multiple actions to be preformed on the selected data. Each action has a button with a value and they all share the same name. Something like:
<button type="submit" value="send_email" name="act">Send email</button>
<button type="submit" value="delete" name="act">Delete</button>
This button works but the value that IE submits is always âDeleteâ (note the capital!?). Seem that when a form has more than one button of type submit IE will always pass the value of last one on the form no matter which button is pressed. This is not the case for <input> buttons.
Guess this means it doesnât fully support HTML 4, or is this a âfeatureâ not a bug?
