Button Tag in HTML5

Introduction 

 
Input The <input> tag specifies an input field where the user can enter data. These attributes make it easier to create forms and set automatic validation.  An input field can be a text field, a checkbox, a password field, a radio button, a button, and more.
 

Input Button Tag

 
The button tag gives you a way to create simple input buttons with custom text. It is similar to the INPUT submit tag but is slightly more flexible. You can say a button tag creates a push button. It is a clickable button that can send a request using a GET or a POST and also performs a client-side action in JavaScript. The <button> tag is supported in all major browsers.
 
Syntax
 
<button name="" type="" value="">HTML</button>
 

Attributes

 
HTML tags can contain one or more attributes. Attributes are added to a tag to provide the browser with more information about how the tag should appear or behave. Attributes consist of a name and a value separated by an equals (=) sign, with the value surrounded by double-quotes.
