HTML <button> Tag

A clickable button is represented by the button tag. This tag is also referred to as the <button> element.

Text (including tags like <b>, <strong>, <br>, <img>, and so on) can be placed within a <button> element. That is not feasible with an <input> element-created button!

Always include the type property with a <button> element to notify browsers what sort of button it is.
