width: 11ex

(or as many ex units as there are characters) It isn't perfect unless you use
monospace fonts, but it is based on character size.

  Hi All,

  Does CSS provide a mechanism for sizing buttons based on their content?
  Similar to using line-height: 105% which ensures text on adjacent lines
  doesn't overlap. If I use width: 100% it obviously sizes the button to the
  full width of the page. Any suggestions?

  Cheers
  Ian
