Button resize?

Discussion in 'HTML' started by Samuël van Laere, Oct 17, 2003.

  1. I noticed Mozilla resizes the text in a button, despite the lack of a
    font-size attribute.
    IE5.5 doesn't resize unless i add a font-size: 100% in the stylesheet.

    Should a button's text resize anyway?


    Thanks in advance.

    It isn't defined in the specification as far as I know - so it should do
    whatever the browser's style sheet (or the user's if they have one) says.

    From a usability perspective, defaulting to input { font-size: 100%; } is a
    good thing.
