Code:
<input type="submit" value="Search" />
You can change the button to an image too (Wouldn't recommend that, tis just annoying :p) I'm pretty sure to submit a form with a text link would require some form of JavaScript.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
