in thread submit button with javascript confirmation

I take your point, in this instance though the target environment has a strictly controlled SOE with IE5 with javascript turned on and I was told to make the user feedback java alerts... I didn't mention it because I was trying to stay out of the javascript debate :)

What do you mean by an "ordinary button"? I still need to submit the form if the user hits OK on the java confirm popup, how else would I do that?

    you could always have a button that would go to a function and basically submit the form if the user clicked ok on the confirmation message. i.e.
    <input type="button" name="submit" value="javascript: submitForm();"> <script language="javascript"> function submitForm() { if (confirm("delete account?")) { mainForm.submit(); } } </script>
    this wasn't a very perl-y example.. but it's similar to what simon.proctor suggested.
