Why aren't you just added a special class to the link? What is the purpose of using a script to do this?

As Jan pointed out, you had some errors in your button code. The browsers that rendered the code fixed those errors for you, while other browsers are not as accommodating.

Wiser, and more HTML/CSS-proficient brains than mine are asked:

Can you tell me please why this specific code works in some browsers

The task:
An intro page contained links to several things, including the main
product documentation, the release notes, some white papers, etc.
It was pointed out that all the links were similar-looking, and the
most important one - the main docs - should stand out.
