What does How To Use The HTML Tag do?
The <button> element is used to create an HTML button. Any text appearing between the opening and closing tags will appear as text on the button. No action takes place by default when a button is clicked. Actions must be added to buttons using JavaScript or by associating the button with a form.

Code Example

<button type="button" onclick="alert('You pressed the button!')">Click me!</button>
