What am I doing wrong with this submit button?

Trying to replace your typical submit button with a background image using CSS. The inline "<input type="image" src="..." didn't work just because I need to assign a specific value to the button and I couldn't get it to work.


Here's my attempt:

<input type='submit' name='submit_assettype' value='continue' style='background-image:url(images/continue_button.jpg);

...and the result is attached. Basically, I'm getting my image AND your normal submit button and I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.

The first thing is expecting "<input type='submit'>" to do something else than be a 'submit button'.  Here are some possibilities:

Add border:none, remove the value="continue" and make sure the button size is the same as the image.
