EXACTLY! And never mind internationalization, what happens when Mr. Marketing
tells you 'back' should be 'go back' or 'search' should be 'go'... Do you
really want to change your application logic every time you have to do this?

Another point regarding wrapping the buttons in one form. You may very well
need three forms because each button could potentially require different
hidden variables. A "Button Factory" function that creates a self-contained
button with hidden elements, form action, etc. can be very useful. You just
drop it into the presentation layer...

You mean the $1,000 worth of books on my bookshelf?
