I have a submit button, however in order to make the look of the buttons in the site the same, I want to use a class that is being applied for links.  I tried changing the button to a link, but then it does not function properly, because I have a test to see if the button is defined, then it runs an update query after being submitted to the page itself.

<cfset id = >
<cfif isdefined("FORM.button") >
            <CFQUERY DATASOURCE="Obi-default"  NAME="UpdateList" >
                  UPDATE NF_WMI
              SET Notes='#form.textarea#'
              WHERE TrackingNumber = ''
         <cflocation url="notessaved.cfm" addtoken="no">  

                   <input type="submit" name="button" id="button"  class="button" value="Submit" />
                //this one works, but does not have the class applying
              <a href="javascript: document.form1.submit()" class="button" title="Submit" name="button" onclick="javascript:Submit()"> Submit</a> //this is not updating, but has the look I want
