XHTML » input » type="reset"

The type="reset" control creates a rectangular button that can be clicked when the user wants to clear all of the fields in a form. The form is redisplayed in its original presentation.

By default the reset button is a gray color and has the text "Reset" displayed inside the button. However, you can change the color using style sheets and you can use the value button to provide a different text for the button. The text displayed on the button will set the minimum size, but you can set a different size using style sheets or the size attribute.

A name is not required, but it is becoming a very common coding practice to give a unique name to every control (field) in a form.
