    The general properties of matter result from its relationship with mass and space. Because of its mass, all matter has inertia (the mass being the measure of its inertia) and weight, if it is in a gravitational field (see gravitation).
    Because it occupies space, all matter has volume and impenetrability, since two objects cannot occupy the same space simultaneously.
    The special properties of matter, on the other hand, depend on internal structure and thus differ from one form of matter, i.e., one substance, to another. Such properties include ductility, elasticity, hardness, malleability, porosity (ability to permit another substance to flow through it), and tenacity (resistance to being pulled apart).

    Kinda struck me as a non-issue, for a number of reasons.
    Looks great Kurt It will be a great reference when a Member has a question on "searching" the forum.

    Ted can figure out a way to make it all fit if you don't have that access. He has done it before.

    You might want to add these two tags to your new sticky and to OM's tag cloud post (search, how to). You did a great job explaining all of the options in enough detail to help those that will take the time to find and use the tips. And for those that don't, well any time they complain that search isn't working we have a link to give them instead of explaining it all over and over.

    Or flea market to just market. Better than just flea.

    Try the Blau style/skin. Let me know what you think. If this looks like it helps, I can do it on the other skins.

    Thanks...

    It improved it a letter or two and now I can click it on the iPad but half the button still overlaps.

    Mike -

    Take a look again...was able to reduce the size of each box. I can only go so far...I'd rather not change some of the wording at this point. But on my phone, I now have no overlap on the Blau style. I think that's going to work just fine. If so, I can make changes to the other styles.

    Looks great now. Blau and default both have spare room now between the Google button and the search box about the size of the Help button. Good job.

    That's what we like to hear. I could tell that things look better on my end, so I went ahead and changed all the skins/styles so they're identical at this point.
