    Button Size (5.5 and up)

    The code <FONT size="8"><INPUT TYPE="submit" NAME="button" VALUE="value"></FONT>
    will provide a large button, i.e. a handycap accessable button on a touch screen monitor, in netscape. Note, all I need to do is change the font size to change the button size.

    How do I adjust the button size in IE?

    I know the crude, easy way--this doesn't involve working with bitmaps, javascript, or hacking the registry. I'll leave that to R2 and others who must know a ton more about IE buttons. But a quick way to go from large to small: Just rt. click the toolbar and select customize/or hit View>Toolbars>Customize add buttons you want, and select large/small and select Text labels/no text labes/text labels right on the pulldown. Or on a keyboard: Open the View menu by pressing ALT + V ; Open Toolbars by pressing T; select customize by pressing C. If you want screenshots for playing with the IE toolbar on the surface level, Microsoft: Customize Your Web Browsing Layout.

    I think the Button circles you want to travel in Cecil are at places like Code Guru IE Toolbars with some of the categories over on the task pane like list on the left. Also a quick search in the MSDN Library on buttons yields this search list. A search of the Developer Center yields another list. This is just a quick start.

    This is a form input button, not a toolbar button issue. I assumed it was an IE specific issue, but it is not. I should have posted to "Web Design, Coding and Scripting" Mozilla behaves the same way, which is interesting, since Netscape is based on Mozilla. I have searched webmonkey to no avail. I have the book "Internet Explorer 5 developers guide" and cannot find what I am looking for. I have expiermented with CSS, tag attributes, etc. I even switched to an XL skin in this forum. However the buttons are not XL.

    I could use a graphic for an input button, perhaps.

    You want the text big, too, right? This should work in IE:

    <input type="submit" value="Go!" name="go" style="font-size: 18pt">

    If you want to use a relative measurement, that probably would be in your CSS reference.

    Sorry--I misread, but being in IE helped. Maybe

    W3.org
    Blooberry
    Alpha Link
    are more in line.

    Thanks

    I tried <input type="submit" value="Go!" name="go" class="largeButton">, but I must have typo'ed something. It works fine now.
