The button does have a similar attribute called “value”. The “value” name will change the text on the button. Here is the sytax for the input element submit: <input type="submit" value="Submit" /> Here is a leason on the form The last slide gives information on the submit element https://www.sololearn.com/learn/HTML/1035/

It's not necessary because its only job is to submit the form. But if you have multiple forms and a lot of input elements it's easier to check which form was submitted by checking which submit button value was set. And with a lot if inputs it's easier to avoid undefined index errors. if(isset($_POST["submit1"])){ echo "form 1 was submitted"; }
