Mukul, if you want to do other things with Javascript (for example,
form validation) on submitting the form, and you are just giving
sample code to describe how you're going about it, then i think it's
ok to do what you're trying to do.

you might want to try using something like

 <a href="javascript:go();"><img src="image.gif"></a>

in netscape.

if this doesn't work you could try using a netscape javascript entity
(i guess something like <img src="image.gif" onClick="&{go()};">)
which might get round it. nb this won't work in IE.

but if it's simply to submit the form, then as al and fish are
say there's no need to use javascript in this instance. (unless you
particularly want to i suppose -- *duck*)

good luck
igor.
