I see this only if Javascript is enabled.  It looks like if JS is disabled there is actually a button there.  With JS it is a div with a link in it and those are styled to look like a button.  
I also see this in Windows XP.  It displays as they intended it in IE, but not in Firefox, or in Safari, which displays it essentially the same unintended way as Firefox.

JavaScript must be enabled to reproduce it.

They are setting the width on the link to 100%.  Browsers other than IE ignore this correctly for an inline element.  But I'm trying to figure what's different between FF2 and FF3.  For the enroll button the computed font size shown by DOMi is 11px in FF2.  In FF3 it is 11.7px.  Yet comparing the screenshots the word enroll is narrower in FF3.  In FF3 the TD which contains the div and the link has a computed width of 51px while in FF2 it is 43 pixels. I'm not sure why it's different but this looks to me to be a Tech Evang bug because of the incorrect assumption they are making about sizing an inline element.  Opera also matches our rendering.

Also if you decrease the text size a few times you can see the problem in FF2 for the enroll button.

I don't think this is reproducible anymore, because the Bank of America homepage has changed.  Since this is a tech evangelism bug, how should this be resolved?
I don't see anything significantly different from two or three years ago on BoA's home page, but I also don't see any differences in rendering between a recent Camino nightly and Safari 5, so I'm going to call this FIXED by a presumed site change in the interim.
