           Summary: Form submission: reveal submit button in submit event
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW

          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)

Besides the problem with not being able to pick the default submit button
(which I think we have recorded somehow for addressing at some point in the
future when HTML forms support is more complete), I'm not sure if we have the
request on the record for identifying the submit button the user used.

The submit event is dispatched on the form element and there is no way provided
to identify which submit button was actually used. If you want to handle the
form on the client that would be useful and should probably have been part of
HTML forms since, well, long ago.
