Submit button css nuked by theme

  1. Hi, I can't figure out why the submit button's CSS formatting is getting messed up my my theme's CSS.

    Form: Go here
    Test client ID code: B2Z

    If you scroll to the bottom of the screen, the form's button doesn't even look like a button and doesn't even change the icon when you scroll over it making it seem like it isn't even a link (clicking the submit will submit the form, however).

    As far as I can tell, my theme uses the following CSS related to forms and input, but I must be missing something along the way here...

    [css]
    .a_button, .a_button span {
    	display: inline-block;
    	-webkit-border-radius: 4px;
    	-moz-border-radius: 4px;
    	border-radius: 4px;
    }
    .a_button {
    	white-space: nowrap;
    	line-height:1em;
    	position:relative;
    	outline: none;
    	overflow: visible; /* removes extra side padding in IE */
    	cursor: pointer;

  2. There is a rule in one of the stylesheets which says this:

    [css]
    * {
        border: medium none;
    }

    If you override that for the gform_submit button, you will see the border around the button element again. You might also need to change the font color to something darker since it was dark grey on light grey once I removed the "no border" rule.

    WIth pagespeed active and the minimizing going, it's hard to tell exactly where that rule is, and with the right click being disabled and the firebug specific CSS, the page is hard to troubleshoot. You will have to find the rule in the stylesheets and come up with the CSS to disable it yourself.
