If you don't want to use the Submit button to submit a form, you can use normal hyper links to submit a form. But you need to use some JavaScript code in the URL of the link.
<a href="javascript: document.myform.submit();">Submit Me </a>

If you want to use javascript to submit following answers are good but it you want to submit for without using javascript just use
<input type="image" src="{image-path}" >  this will work same as submit button.

I know its a bit late to answer but the above answers may mislead freshers. Ram redirection is not form submit, to submit a form without submit button, we may use java script.

eg: ;

  1.  document.getElementById(form id).submit()

  2. <form id="form1" action="#page to submit form data">

  3. // form contents

  4. </form>


  6. <script type="text/javascript">

  7.   document.getElementById(form1).submit();

  8. </script>
