in reply to Search button in 'Perlmonks' header bar

The only difference that should have been noticeable is that the button now has a 2-pixel-width border around it, like normal html buttons. If you see something different from that, please do let us know, and provide screen shots if possible, as well as platform details.

I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.

    I just thought the button had grown. I didn't recall it not having a border. But it feels like not only is the button "bigger", but the font looks bigger, too. (I'm guessing that's a perceptual illusion, though. I expect that the Search font was just about the size of the text box to the left, so when the border appeared, it all looked bigger.) I suspect that had the button size been about the same height as the text entry box, I might not've noticed the change. It all looks good, though, no complaint--just curiosity.

    Just for reference, I'm using the 'Blue' theme, I'm on a Linux box (Ubuntu) running Firefox. (Probably irrelevant since there's nothing wrong.)


    When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like your thumb.

      Interesting! When people didn't see it / think of it as a button, the larger text seemed "normal"; now that it's obviously a button, the larger text seems unusually large. I wouldn't say it doesn't matter; perceptions matter.
