problem using validator framework with DispatchAction

I'm using Struts 1.1 validation framework. There are two buttons
in my form: submit and cancel. They are both html:submit.

When "submit" is clicked, the JavaScript
validate the entries in the form first, then the form is submit.

When "cancel" is clicked, the javascript still validates
the form. I want to bypass the JavaScript validation in this case.
I tried html:cancel for the cancel button and found no difference.

How to bypass client side JavaScript validation when "cancel"
button is click?

Just use the html:cancel tag instead of html:submit. This tag will cause validations to be bypassed.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
