When javascript counts the number of elements in a form, what counts as an element. That is, what does javascript count?

The number of input elements (<li>) varies from 1 - 5. When I changed the input submit src=image button with the <button> submit button, javascript counted one additional element. How can I get it to count just the elements in the <li>? Thanks.

var length = document.form.elements.length;

<form name="form" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" >

  <input name="checkbox" type="checkbox" value="'. $i . '"/>

<!--<input name="submit_checkbox" type="image" src="/images/submit.jpg"/>-->
<button name="submit_checkbox" type="submit">submit</button>
