Regular staples do rust, but I read an article by Karen Randall a few years ago saying it's perfectly safe to let them rust in your tank, being that they are so small, and wouldn't do a thing to alter your water chemistry. By the time they rust down, the plants have gotten a good foothold, and it works very well.
I was always skeptical about doing it, but after reading her article I tried it and it works great.
