Aaah; well, if you are as warped as I am . . .

I ALWAYS use images as buttons, as I like to guarantee a unified

I have been known to used graphic objects, video-payers and even fields 
as buttons.

Therefore, I, amongst others, might choose to use prefixes not to 
indicate what controls
actually are, but what they are used for!
