Mini-rant on HTML forms

Whose idea was the <input type="reset" ... /> button in HTML forms? Have you ever mangled a form so badly that you can't just retype the field you scrogged so you really want a button that lets you wipe out all of the fields? Have you ever accidentally hit the "wipe out all of the fields" button when you meant to hit the "Submit" button?

'nuff said.

Okay, one more thing... it entirely breaks the form concept anyhow. The reset is handled entirely within your browser. The server-side never sees that "input".
