I didn't see mention of this in
How is it specified. Is there anonther attribute to the submit type
or is the value of the submit button always sent? Will this break
existing implementations? How *EXACTLY* is it being implemented in
Xmosaic. (It's not always the same as the spec) Once I get the
answers to these burning questions I can get it implemented in
2.3 for release soon.
