Wrong display of buttons in the survey page with long labels

When labels used for these buttons are too long, the character » is displayed on the left of the button glyph.

I need to check this also on other platforms to see if it's only a Mac problem.
Ever worst on Windows XP

I'm using width 310px, but it still can be a bit longer if needed.

How can we test it?
Andres: I'm concerned that any width we hard-code into the page layout will be too wide for some languages, too narrow for others.  Can we instead allow the width to be determined dynamically based on the width of the contents?

Flod:  To test this (or any patch), you'll have to be running Test Pilot from an Hg checkout (instructions here: ) Then save the proposed patch as a "patch.diff" file, and do

hg import patch.diff

you may have to enter an Hg commit comment; just enter whatever.  Then restart Firefox and you should see the changes applied.

Removed the width value, the box now grow according to the label width.

This is the kind of thing (odd layout) QA just knows to look out for during manual testing.  Not going to write a specific litmus test cases for it. Probably not easily automated either.
