Since we seem to be discussing this one on the list, here's the suggestion
I sent to glt -at- ICONOVEX -dot- COM -dot-
My understanding of the situation is:
1. The default values show up when the application or window opens.
2. The user changes these values.
3. The user can reset the values to their defaults by pressing this button.
My suggestion is to call this the "Reset" button and use an icon like the
"Reload" icon in most Web browsers. (Netscape uses a dot or square with a
rounded arrow looping away from the dot and back.)
