Well, it's either image or submit. One type or the other. I think the usual copout involves a transparent button combined with a background image.

@lucy24, no, input type "image" is designed to act as a submit button.
@reffik024, I'm curious, what exactly do you mean by "doesn't work"? Can you create a very minimal test case that demonstrates it?

###. Forgot that detail. (I have a similar mental block on "reset". Most recently it went astray the day before yesterday.)

First things first: what doctype and is your code validated without any complaints ?

Doctype set as <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
When I say "doesn't work" I mean when I click on it, the form does not submit.

Here's a base case which works for me in all browsers.
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
<input name="doLogin" type="image" src="http://www.webmasterworld.com/gfx/logo.png"
style="margin-left:90px;" id="doLogin3" value="Login">

Does that work for you? If so, then you'll probably need to whittle down your own code to figure out what is preventing it from working.

Just tried that, does not work for me. For some reason it won't work unless type="submit"

Hmm. That's bizarre. Could you maybe have some browser plugin/toolbar that's preventing the default browser behavior? What version of IE and Firefox?

The last time anyone should use that doctype for new web pages was 1999. Quit using it. Use this one:
