Q.  Why is my HTML button submitting the form?

A.  In some browsers it does that.
You need to add type=button so it doesn't submit, like this:

<button type="button">Hello</button>
Which is the same as:
<input type="button" value="Hello">
In my option <button> should imply type=button but what can you do?
