Oh, I didn't take it unkindly, at all! I understood what you were saying, and you were right. jQuery would clearly do the search for button first (if it didn't use querySelectorAll, as suggested by Glenn) if for no other reason that there might be other non-button elements with the same classname. I admit I was sloppy, and you caught me. "Snide" is a poor choice of words on my part; "chide" would be better.
