Button elements do not align vertically along the baseline of other text etc. Let Mozilla render this: <p>Test text <button>Button</button> <input type="submit" /> some more text.</p> ... and notice how the button element is not correctly aligned vertically, unlike the input element. This bug makes the use of button elements look very weird in Mozilla...
This bug was previously reported as bug 58190, and was marked fixed in 2001. I'm still seeing this bug however, both in Mozilla 1.0 and Mozilla build 2002081308. I was hoping this bug could be fixed before Mozilla 1.1 gets released, since it's afterall making Mozilla render basic HTML 4 incorrectly. I'd do it myself, if I only had the expertise...
Not happening for 1.1 unless it's a crash fix, at this point.

Neither are truly baseline-to-baseline-aligned -- it's just the input is 'text-bottom' aligned, but the button is 'baseline' aligned and the baseline knowledge doesn't to through the button. The following patch would make the bottoms of the controls line up, but they'll still be different sizes.
