On my paypal account I have created a buynow button. Copied pasted the html on my webpage but after clicking the button, Its not getting redirected to the paypal website for the payment. I have tried the button in three browsers IE firefox and chrome, created a new  buynow button  but still no luck. I am using asp.net c# on windows 7. Any ideas why it could be happening?

Works just fine by itself. Please paste here the source of the whole page (from the browser).

or try using this code instead:
<form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick">
<input type="hidden" name="hosted_button_id" value="M7Z2QNQMGJ6WS">
<button><img src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/GB/i/btn/btn_buynowCC_LG.gif" border="0"></button>
<img alt="" border="0" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_GB/i/scr/pixel.gif" width="1" height="1">
</form>
