Hello List, I am wondering if this is a peculiarity of my machine, or whether this is built-in behavior in the Opera (9.52) and IE8 (b2). I am currently working on a site that uses <button>Text</button> and <input type="button" value="Text" /> in an XHTML 1.0 Transitional doctype, and all browsers (including IE6 and IE7) center the text both horizontally and vertically on the buttons. IE8b2 and Opera 9.52 appear to center the text horizontally, but align it with the *top* of the button. Could someone please verify this? I only have one machine at my disposal at the moment. If this is a known problem/bug/feature/quirk, would anyone happen to know how to get the text vertically centered, without setting line-height (some of my <button>s have multi-line text)? Kind regards, Rick.
