Why Can't I use html <a> tag to change the view state in web flow?

I am using JSF trinidad and spring web flow. I found a interesting thing. If I put the html code generated by a commandLink tag, instead put this JSF commandlink tag, after clicking it, the page will be refreshed but will not go into the next state. Does know the reason and how to solve it?

Using POST for pure navigational purposes is a bad idea.
Use h:outputLink instead with a plain vanilla URL.
