A password form
When data entered in a password field is sent to the server, it is
not encrypted in any way. Therefore, this is not a secure means of

Creating Submit Buttons
Submit buttons are used to indicate that the user is finished filling out the form. Setting
the type attribute of the form to submit places a Submit button on the page with the
default label determined by the browser, usually Submit Query . To change the button
text, use the value attribute and enter your own label, as follows:
<input type=“submit” value=“Send Form Data” />
Your forms can contain more than one Submit button.
If you include a name attribute for a Submit button, the value that you assign to the field
is sent to the server if the user clicks on that Submit button. This enables you to take dif-
ferent actions based on which Submit button the user clicks, if you have more than one.
For example, you could create two Submit buttons, both with the name attribute set to
“action” . The first might have a value of “edit” and the second a value of “delete” . In
your script, you could test the value associated with that field to determine what the user
wanted to do when he submitted the form.
