[Moin-user] Questions about Page title/backlink styles and logout button style

The main reason I wanted to disable the "backlink" capability in Moin 
1.5 is that the backlink wasn't showing up in a sensible way on my pages 
(I use a custom theme); it's showing up as a bulleted list entry. Now 
that I know it's supposed to be the page title, things make more sense, 
but I need to get it to display properly on my pages. Inspecting the 
page HTML source showed this:

<ul id="pagelocation">
<li><a class="backlink" title="Click to do a full-text search for this title" href="/cgi-bin/home.cgi/ZBrush_Info?action=fullsearch&value=linkto%3A%22ZBrush+Info%22&context=180">ZBrush Info</a></li>

This made me think that perhaps there is a special "backlink" style that 
makes the page titles appear properly. However, a search for "backlink" 
through the entire 1.5.3 source using the Spotlight search feature of OS 
X indicates that "backlink" occurs in two .py files but no .css files; 
also, hand searches through the "obvious" .css files show no special 
style for "backlink". Given that the page title occurs in an HTML list, 
I can't figure out how the default Moin themes can present it properly 
without having .css styles defined. Any ideas?

The "logout" button is also showing up in a different form than all of 
the other "action" (i.e. edit, attach file, etc) links, presumably 
because it is an "input" element type rather than an actual link. If 
necessary, I'll move it so that it appears in a separate location (I 
think I can do that in multiconfig.py), but given that it doesn't have a 
"class" entry, is there a way to make it look like my other entries 
easily, and in a way that will actually work across browsers? I don't 
know CSS terribly well, but am aware that IE in particular has very poor 
support for some CSS features.
