    I have a very nice grid layout that has everything aligned perfectly except my decorated button, I see that it wraps my input button into an anchor tag in Firebug. I tried adding margin to the top of the anchor tag but that just causes my entire row to shift not the individual button. If I add padding to the anchor it causes all of the image assumptions to become messed up and makes the button not look right.

    Is there a known solution to making this be vertically aligned in the middle as opposed to the top of the parent element?

    Hi Chris Marisic,

    Aligning an element vertically in XHTML is a hard task, because unlike in quirks mode, vertical-align does not apply to all elements. Try to set vertical-align: middle to the cell that the skinned button is in. If this does not work, send us a small running project and we wil try to fix this for you.

    Best wishes,

    this worked for us:










    padding-right: 6px !important;
