You can create a textual form element in HTML 4.0.  The 
<BUTTON>Your text here</BUTTON> element.  Please check it out and see if
that (possibly with styles) will do what you are looking for.

It sounds like the core of this issue is cache control - when to refresh
and when no to refresh.

Perhaps this is better attacked from that angle than changing the link
modes.
