    You are right, that button style is pretty far from how a button may 
looks like. I'm going to fix it.

    It seems a bug, if you don't fill the text file input the form must 
warn you. I'm going to fix this one too.

    If you get idnits errors you have two options:

    * Request a manual post from the secretariat using the 'Adjust 
metadata' button
    * Cancel the submission

    If you don't choose any of these option you can not resend the same 
draft cause previous submission is still on hold.

    I think that could be a good idea to include a link to the previous 
submission in the message that says "Duplicate Internet-Draft submission 
is currently in process" so you can cancel it if suitable.
