Thanks,
  I cannot belive it? does it work with input tags but not with button tags?
Anyway I do not think that is a good solution, for instace if you plan to 
makea multilingual application. 
May be this is the only one to support IE; but is what I try to avoid, to make 
a bad solution only for supporing IE. I rather prefer to warn the users about 
using a "HTML 4.01 compliant navigator".
