I would like to replace the ugly standard submit button
with an image. The try with

"<input type=image src="button.gif" value="Logout">"

does not works.


<form method=post action="cc.cgi" target="_top">
<input type=hidden name="raum" value="Treffpunkt">
<input type=hidden name="name" value="Renate">
<input type=hidden name="where" value="Logout">
<input type=submit value="Logout">

Thanks for your help

To properly use an image in an HTML form, you must use the tag:

<INPUT TYPE=IMAGE SRC="your_graphic_here.gif">

When your user clicks on this, the form will be submitted along with the x and y coordinates of where your user clicked on the image.  Most pre-written cgi's will not work unless they are set up to handle these x and y coordinates.
