Hello,

If I put a <font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="-2"> before a netscape form button the button sizes correctly, BUT with IE the text button is unaffected,... how can I size the text on the IE form buttons?

Thanks
Keith

in IE, do this:

<INPUT type='button' name='mybutton' style='font: 9pt Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;'>

knight has used the font shorthand, a more reliable way of doing it is,

<input type="button" style="font-family: verdana; font-size: 10px; font-weight: 500; color: #000000;"/>
