I think it will need to become wide enough to fit text... if will expand til it fits, at a minimum.
But... probably could use <... style="width:20px;">, or something.
//random guess... not sure.

I really don't know CSS that well.
Generally, CSS works better than just html, so that's why I used style="height... rather than height="..., which may have not worked.

As for color... google button colors and CSS properties.
Off the top of my head, I'd suggest as possibilities 'color' and 'border-color'. See what happens.
And remember,
style="property: #000000;"
That's for black... just change the hex code for colors.

Buttons are one of the hardest elements to style. The support for this varies by browser. A strict HTML 4.01 DOCTYPE helps. The color of a button (when supported) is its background-color property.

You should avoid using pixels to size things wherever possible, though... the text in the button won't be visible if the user's font size is too big.

In addition to that, use the according padding to enlarge it from it's current width. That will make sure the text doesn't get hidden, it just expands.
