Creating an Image Submit Button
You want to create a custom Submit button with an image file, such as the one in Figure.
Use the input element with the type attribute set to image:
<input type="image" name="submit" src="submit.gif" />
The magnifying glass icon acts a Submit button
Although inserting an image as a Submit button utilizes HTML, once it's placed in a web page, the Submit button image can be modified through CSS properties like border and margin.
The HTML specification for the input element at http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/interact/forms.html#h-17.4.
