I know that <a href="javascript:document.formname.submit();"> works for
this, but can you use a hyperlink to submit a form WITHOUT assigning the
form tags name attribute a value. The site I am currently working on is
supposed to be HTML 4 (w3c) complient, but according to the HTML validator
the name attribute has been depreciated and should no longer be used. I'm
not saying I agree with this, just that I have little choice in the matter.
