[html5] button element value on submission

Given a form with 2 submit buttons, each with its own value, what
happens onsubmit? The spec says that only the value of the button used
to submit the form is to be submitted. What is actual client behavior?
Details: I have pages with 2 forms to allow visitors to purchase a photo
via PayPal. The forms are identical, each with a single select element
and several hidden inputs, except for one hidden input's value; one is a
"buy now" form, the other an "add to card" form.
I was thinking of moving the value of the hidden inputs to buttons, then
putting both buttons in the same form.
I another page with 2 forms, each with a single input type=text field,
and there too it might be easier to maintain if I had one form with
different values for the submit button.
it appears that the submit element is out, thanks to a borked
implementation in MSIE (as late as v.6!).
I've also read
but it's a bit old now. So perhaps I can still do it using input
type=submit. Does anyone have any experience here? Are there other
resources on the web I can check?
