    I use local copies of your std skin files so I can make subtle changes.

    I have just installed the latest release, and all my button controls have lost their CSS styling - see image.

    What has changed?

    I can't tell what should be the problem only form the screenshot, but I guess it should be that: [Breaking Change] Since Q1 2013 RadButton's rendering is HTML5 compliant .

    And I will paste the info from the forum also here:

    Since Q1 2013, the wrapping element of RadButton was changed from an anchor <a> tag to a <span> because the HTML5 specification does not allow nesting <input> elements into <a> tags. If you are using any custom CSS cascades based on the <a> tag, they should be changed to use the <span> tag, e.g.

    Old syntax:
    a.RadButton .rbDecorated
          color: red;

    New syntax:
    span.RadButton .rbDecorated
          color: red;

    You should not experience problems in custom styling scenarios when an anchor was not used in the CSS cascade.
