Going on a Safari....

In general I would agree that the font size would out weigh the merits  
of the native appearance of the button. However, I have a question.

I'm assuming that this solution would only solve the problem for the  
button in the component, and that the other buttons the integrator  
puts on the page would still suffer from this issue.

In that case, would it be confusing to the integrator why it works in  
some places and not in others? If this is a problem with the browser,  
it may be a good idea to document the issue.

In general, it may be helpful to have a section on the wiki or build  
site that demonstrates all of  the 3rd party issues that we have  
encountered and are reliant on someone else to fix. (i.e. browser  
specific issues that don't have a work around) This would also provide  
us with a point of reference to determine if new browser versions  
solve these issues.
