<form>be able to make HTTP requests?
submitevents trigger them?
By removing these arbitrary constraints htmx completes HTML as a hypertext
<!-- Load from unpkg --> <script src="https://email@example.com"></script> <!-- have a button POST a click via AJAX --> <button hx-post="/clicked" hx-swap="outerHTML"> Click Me </button>
