In IE7 the text on the buttons is really large and therefore the text runs across the button borders. Any idea why?

Will this solve the problem with my buttons? See the very right of my picture: "Search ..... " text and "Edit subscription" text.

Jos,

What you can try doing is editing your template_css.css file.  Scroll down to about line 320 and look for the .button class.  You will notice the font-size is set to 14px.  You can try lowering this and it might fix your problem.  On the search button you could also take out some of the periods which should take down the length of that button.

The weard thing is that the texts in the buttons are OK in IE6 and FF. Why then not OK in IE7?

I believe that IE7 formats buttons a little different than in IE6 and FF.  It seems that it adds some extra padding to the HTML buttons.

I'm not sure why IE makes the font size larger, must just be the way it interprets it.  Try taking down the font size a pixel or two with the CSS edit I posted above.
