Thanks, Jack, for the clarifications and the quick reply.
Now, on that Clear button/link, I should be able to handle restyling it. Just to explain my confusion and perhaps to improve the template, on my desktop browsers the clickable region is very small and not on the text itself. It seems to be limited to that small white strip in the screen capture below. I’m not sure why or what’s cancelling it, though I imagine that that’s close to unusable on handheld devices.
