HTML Question

Triggering any HTTP method request from pure HTML

I wold like to send a non-

GET
http
request from my
HTML
web-page.

But, I don't want to use any script (
js
,
php
, etc.).

I want this request to be sent only using HTML.
Is that feasible?

For example:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>
<a href="http://www.example.com/">some text</a>
</body>
</html>


If a user will click on
"some text"
it will trigger an
http
GET
request. Now, let's say I would like to send a
POST
request, but not use any scripts, only pure
HTML
- is that possible?

Answer

If you use an HTML <form> element, you can specify the method as either GET or POST.

There is no way other way of specifying a non-GET request, nor any other HTTP verb apart from GET and POST in HTML.
