<INPUT TYPE="submit" a definition of the handler onClick="handler-statements"> submit.onclick a reference to the handler submit.onclick(); an explicit invocation of the handler
The Submit button has the special function of submitting a form to the server. This event handler may add any additional functionality to the Submit button. In Navigator 2.0, there is no way for this onclick() event handler to cancel the submit action or to prevent the form from being submitted; use the Form.onsubmit() event handler to perform input validation and to cancel form submission if necessary.
In Navigator 3.0, the onclick() event handler may return false to prevent the Submit object from submitting the form.
