Hello all, I have a problem to create a form's cancel button. It will be appreciable if anybody help me.

The code is about the cancel button, im actully making a form which has a cancel button. If the button is pressed it will redirect in another page.

Write the code in the OnClick Event to redirect the page to other url. Something similar to the Go Advanced button in the quick reply

<a href="url.html"><input type="button" name="cancel" value="Cancel" /></a>

This ones particularly nice because it only depends on html

GreatGizzards, thank you!
works perfectly and I also wanted to mention that I needed to re-direct to a php file to instead of url.html, I entered home.php and bingo, it worked.
