Dear Sophia,

The user important style does overwrite the author overwrite, at least
in Firefox and IE.  I constructed a clean file with no lingering
javascript and the page behaved well in both browsers.

The problem is with the vendors javascript.  They kill the display.
It was hard to track down. When I went into Firebug and deleted the
author's !important on the height=0 the text appeared.  Only after I
looked and saw that the css settings had been reset by my stylesheet
did I realize something else was going on.

Many kludges later I could see my button's text.

So, CSS is interpreted correct by Firefox and IE.  I report the bug to
the vendor who shall remain anonymous.
