The first case would suit me fine. But how would I do this exactly? Use 
a simple button instead of <html:button> and include it in a <a> element?
I'm trying to do this as uniform as possible as with the other buttons 
which are <htm:submit>, <html:reset> and <html:cancel>.
My current code looks like this:        
<a href="<%=request.getContextPath()%>/">
  <html:button styleClass="button" property="back">
    <bean:message key="prompt.back.button" />
but I still need to add a back property to the form bean which is not 
really needed.
