I'm having great fun putting a site together at high speed with SS, and have found my first little problem that I can't work out...

How do you use a input type=image on a form?

I've got a search form, and can't see anywhere in the docs or on the forum how to use an image in the FormAction.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Oh and does anyone know why the SS search form code spit out so much random HTML such as a div element and span elements?

Where does this get written?

Try ImageFormAction.

Or you just want to style the normal form action button with CSS. All forms outputed from SS should have custom ID's attached so you just need to find that out then in your CSS file just style the action button with the image as a background and a set width / height.
