Internet Basics Tutorial
The Basics of Your Browser Web Application Menus and Buttons
The buttons of a web page can simply be images. They can link you to another page and start other actions. But within a form, they are used to specify information, reset the form, create form pre-sets or submit the form when it is completed.
Technically, they act like buttons, in that they create a physical response to an action, and are pressed. But they actually provide information like a field does (Figure 10). Radio buttons allow only one selection at a time.
To select a radio button, scroll over it with the pointer of the mouse, and click once. You can tell that it is selected because a dark circle will appear within the gray circle, and it will look as if it has been pressed down.
