But don't forget that you can apply CSS to style the buttons also?
Google a bit for CSS and Buttons and you will find a bunch of css
styles, also many links talking about how browsers format buttons
differently and how you can benefit from a "reset" style sheet to
normalise those also. Once you know the CSS you want it's just a case
of adding those styles to PMWiki
Note I have setup my wikis to largely deviate from the PMWiki formatting
and do near everything through CSS. I use say /Site/StyleSheet to be my
CSS page, and now it's easily editable through the wiki itself. That
page can use wiki "includes" to allow construction of the main style
sheet from a bunch of sub pages , eg /Site/StyleSheetButtons. Finally I
use some magic to ensure that the converted style is generated only when
the wiki pages change and not every page request
This works brilliantly and I would hope that this way of thinking starts
to work it's way into the core?
