First, the easy answer is to use CSS to style the buttons to look cooler. You could possibly to images, but that would be a bit harder, since javascript is so convenient for buttons.

<input type="button" ... value="Play" onClick="if (this.value == 'Play') this.value = 'Stop'; else this.value = 'Play';">
I *think* that syntax is correct.

Using that onclick command will make it switch to the other thing.. if it's set to play, then say stop, etc. Setting the original value as "play" should match since it starts playing and can go from there.

If you need to actually CHANGE the button there, it's possible, but complex.

At the moment, it's just one button that does stuff. If you did two buttons, you'd need to switch visibility between them and/or replace it each time with javascript. It's more complex.

Hope this helps.
