The button appears but nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?
echo "<div id='home'><FORM><INPUT TYPE='button' VALUE='HOME' onClick='location.href=../../index.html'></FORM></div>";

Open in new window

the javascript for the onclick should be window.location="../../index.html";

is the onclick firing at all?
To double check that try putting an alert in there so that you know that something is firing.
So put onclick='javascript:alert("this is the onclick");'

Is the page two levels deep in your site?  What if you used "/index.html" instead of "../../index.html"?

How about just this:

<a href="/">Home</a>

You can style that link if you want to.

It did work just had to work the syntax error.
echo "<div id='home'><FORM><INPUT TYPE='button' VALUE='HOME' onClick=window.location='../../index.html'></FORM></div>";
