submission button oddity Can't Post

I'm trying to use a clickable image button as a submit button, and im using the shortcut:

print image_button(-name=>'name', -src=>'image_url');

to do this. It displays the image but when clicked it doesn't seem to send the name parameter
(I test for/expect it). However when I use a normal button like:

print submit(-name=>'name', -value=>'submit');

it works just fine. Anyone ever have this problem or any ideas what's wrong? (I tried it in mulitple browsers as well as without the shortcuts)

My perldoc tells me the following about what happens when you click an image_button:

       image_button() produces a clickable image.  When it's 
clicked on the position of the click is returned to your
script as "button_name.x" and "button_name.y", where "but­
ton_name" is the name you've assigned to it.

Are you expecting that beahivour but it doesn't happen? Or are you expecting something else to happen?

ah, yes it does say that. I was testing for 'button_name' and apparently doing


will not return true with an image. I tested for 'button_name.x' and it worked. Seems like you should be able to do what I tried. It's more intuitive, but it's Perl you cant be too picky I suppose. Thanks.
