Ah, the Netscape whitespaces issue... the below will
work if you're using a table as the container for the
radio button:

Is your radio button contained in a table cell? If
so, make sure that the <td>...button...</td> is in one
continuous line - do not not use a manual carriage
return anywhere in the html code within that <td>
element. Even though it makes it more readable for
yourself, Netscape 4+ handles it badly.

For the table containing the <td>, make sure that
cellpadding="0" and cellspacing="0" and border="0" for
the table <table cellpadding="0", etc.)

For consistency, quotes around all attribute values.
