Here's my submit form dilemma:

I would like to use ColdFusion form validation <cfform><cfinput
required="yes" etc.> but my graphics designer has set up a submit scheme
utilizing events to swap in cool images running a javascript url routine <a
href="javascript:etc." onmouseover="etc."><img src etc.></a>

Cold fusion doesn't initiate its serverside validation routines with this

Is there any way I can use standard forms approaches <input type=submit> or
even <button> without having to use the canned buttons, and swap in the
graphics artists' cool button images instead, thus retaining the coldfusion
functionality, and not having to write lots of javascript forms

Help please.
