Quick question from a newbie:
Say I have a button that's 50 px tall.
When vertically aligning text within a button what's the proper top and bottom padding?
distance from top button edge to Cap height = distance from bottom button edge to baseline?
Or does it make sense to add 1-2 pixels on the bottom since centered text appears lower?
Assume a 37px tall button with 12px Arial.
or should some other measure be used to vertically center it?
