How would web developers have a reason to drink if MicroSoft didn't exist!
Did you try setting the padding to zero on the submit button?

If you look at that with Firefox/Opera/Safari there's no padding inside
those red boxes (borders on the <input>).

If you look at this in IE6/7 (didn't test IE8)  then there's "padding", but
it seems related to how much text there is in the box.

Where's that padding coming from?  And can I get rid of it?  I want to place
icons next to the text and that spacing makes it look very odd.


BTW - These are forms because clicking on these generate a POST to change
