An a link defaults to mini in a footer, but a button doesn't.


   <div data-role="footer" data-theme="e">
        <button type="button" id="skillSelect_Save" data-icon="check">Save</button>
        <a href="#" data-type="button" data-rel="back" data-icon="delete">Close</a>
    </div><!-- /footer -->

Tested on IE9, Chrome 18.0.1025.152 m, FF 11.0, Safari (5.1.5 for Windows and iOS 5.1 on iPad and iPhone 4S) and Opera 11.61.

You're right - all buttons, regardless of markup, should be mini by default in toolbars.

Has the last pull request made it into 1.1.1RC1? Because I still see the old behavior of not automatically setting data-mini="true" for buttons using <button> markup. Note: I have merged the changes of #4638 into my 1.1.1RC1 codebase.
In "master" everything is working fine.

Thanks for your comment.
It looks like we forgot to cherry-pick this fix into the branch that is used for the 1.1.1RC1 release :(
I am afraid this means it has to wait for the 1.1.2 and 1.2 releases.
