    Default a GUI question

    Hi there,<BR>Does anyone know the original purpose of what the &#060;input type="reset"&#062; button is for? I recently filled in a lenghty survey form, and when I tried to submit it, I accidentally clicked the reset button instead of the submit button. It then occurred to me - what good is that button for? Is there certain standards on when this button is to be used?
