HTML <button> formenctype Attribute
A form with two submit buttons. The first submit button submits the form data with default character encoding, and the second submits the form data without character encoding:
Name: <input type="text" name="fname" value="Ståle Refsnes"><br>
<button type="submit">Submit with character encoding</button>
<button type="submit" formenctype="text/plain">Submit without character encoding</button>

Definition and Usage
The formenctype attribute specifies how form-data should be encoded before sending it to a server. This attribute overrides the form's enctype attribute.
The formenctype attribute is only used for buttons with type="submit".
The numbers in the table specify the first browser version that fully supports the attribute.
Differences Between HTML 4.01 and HTML5
The formenctype attribute is new in HTML5.
|application/x-www-form-urlencoded||Default. All characters will be encoded before sent|
|multipart/form-data||No characters are encoded (use this when you are using forms that have a file upload control)|
|text/plain||Spaces are converted to "+" symbols, but no characters are encoded|
