"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Buttons are not links - rather use a link and style it as a button i.e

<a class="btn btn-info btn-lg pull-center" href= "page2.php">2. By s EDI Files<br>(through web )</a>

Why define an onlick for a button when a <a> looks exactly the same and does the same thing by default?
