Here is the trick.
With the way that it is set up now, there is a "<a> hover" feature that takes place.
In other words, the button lights up when you hover over it.
With a <form> function, there is no <a> in order for it to work, just a "src" or "action".
That is why I was looking to see if I could auto submit.
Otherwise, I will just simplify and make the PayPal button static.
