This is what I'm trying to do.
I want to give user the option to enter their e-mail address and then hit the "Subcribe Now" button to send their e-mail address to me.
The problem is, I want to create a custom "submit button" that will match the design of the page. The regular submit button is not appealing and just too dry.
I want to make the form and then add a fancy button that user can click to send the data.
So the question, how do you create a custom form submit button?
Thanks for all your help.

<input type="image" src="path/to/image">
Then style with CSS

You left out option 3.
<button type="submit">custom button content including HTML goes here</button

Well, I'm not going to be using text, because I will be including the text on the button as a single graphic.
I will be creating the graphic in Fireworks.
Anyway guys I'm a little confused by the addition and subtraction.:D
Which is the best way?

Thats like saying what is the best programming language. I would personally use option 1.

Just another thought, is there a way to make the image in the button rollover, like applying a hover state?

If you apply the image to a submit button using css background, then you can add a different image for the hover state.
