"Submit Button" in Forms

I am working with FORMS on the Web Development Track. I am working with the code to create and style a form. But, I want to test my form with a "Submit" button. What code can I use for this button?

Thanks. I thought that it was more to it. I am trying to test the button submitting the form elements back to my email address. I am assuming the the property is the "mailto: info@mymail.comm"

I am new to this. I have completed the HTML and the FORMS tracks. But the Forms did not show me how to create submit a form, just create one. That is why, I thought I would need to email. However, do you recommend that I move to the PHP track now? Or will mailing be sufficient until I complete the entire Front End Track?

Well, emailing isn't needed for submitting a form, but something like PHP would still be needed to validate and use the data. Unless you want to learn about more HTML and CSS stuff like tables, audio, and video, you should probably move to PHP for now.
