I do have a form that I am trying to submit using a link. I have the following function in the header

function submitIt()

and I have the following code in the form.

< href="javascript:void(0);" onKlick="javascript:submitIt();"> Click Here to Submit the Form </a>

When I submit it in Internet Explorer it is not going to the page specified by But when I test it in Firefox, it works. Any idea why is this happening? How can I get it straight?
When I use a button to submit the form, it works both in IE and firefox.

<a href="#" onclick="submitIt();return false">
