I would like to make the value of a button appear in two lines. Can this be done? I tried the \n but that worked perfectly to add \n to the value.

Thanks!

methinks you'll have to use a <button> for that:

<button>Hello<br>World</button>

cant seem to make <input type="button">'s wrap even if i set specific padding/width/height:

eg: <input type="button" value="Hello World" style="width: 50px; height: 50px; padding: 10px;">
does not wrap (tested ie6)

hmm...

Excelent! Still allows the onClick method so I didn't care if it was an input or not. Honestly I didn't know there was a button tag. I use the w3c reference all the time and just haven't seen it. Now I have two lines AND an image!

Thanks again:D

IE5.5+ I believe. There's a better way that displays in all but I forget how it's done.:D

You could try this: value="Hello& #10;World"

You'll need to take out the space between the & and the # (I put the space in so the characters would display).
