In this case I would use #button instead of #submitButton. An
alternative would be to use an #anchor, but I would refrain from using
a #div for actions. Search engines, mobile users and people with
cognitive disabilities will thank you :-)

The simplest thing you can do from within the form is:

     html div onClick: 'submit()'; with: 'Submit'

That doesn't use AJAX and doesn't require an external Javascript library.
