Hi! I'm hoping someone here can help me out.

I'm trying to use an image as a submit button which in turn loads a php script.
Here's what I have

HTML File:


<title>No title</title>
<meta name="generator">

<body bgcolor="white" text="black" link="blue" vlink="purple" alink="red">
<form name="form1" method="post" action="post.php">
    <p> </p>
    <table border="1" width="407">
            <td width="200">
                <p><input type="text" name="name"></p>
            <td width="191">
                <p><input type="text" name="pwd"></p>
                <p><input type="image" name"submit_btn" src="button1.jpg" alt"Submit"></p>
                </td>        </tr>
            <td width="397" colspan="2"><input type="submit" name="submit_btn"></td>
<p> </p>


And here's what i have for the php:


  $username = $_POST['name'];
  $password = $_POST['pwd'];
  $text = $username . "," . $password . "\n";
  $fp = fopen('data.txt', 'a+');

    if(fwrite($fp, $text))  {
        echo 'saved';
fclose ($fp);    

It works fine with a standard Submit button.

I would really appreciate any little bit of help you can offer!
