You could echo HTML code e.g.

<form action="result.php" method="post">
Number: <input id="quantity" type="text" />
*<button type="button" onclick="OpenWindow()">Submit</button>*

or include it as one of your form attributes:

*<form action="demo_form.asp" method="get" target="_blank">*
  First name: <input type="text" name="fname"><br>
  Last name: <input type="text" name="lname"><br>
  <input type="submit" value="Submit">
