I believe that this is a matter of taste (no pun intended).  Coincidentally,
also the English and German words (button, Knopf) can be used in connection
with pieces of clothing.

In the i18n.c of vdr 1.4.5, I can only find one label containing "button":
"Menu button closes" ("Menu-Taste schließt").  So, I guess that you can
ignore my remark.

Suggestion: replace "Setup.OSD$Menu button closes" with
"Setup.OSD$Menu key closes".

Hmm, what is the logic between "Key$" and "Button$" names?  Is there a
reason to have both "Key$Stop" and "Button$Stop"?  Perhaps one of them
should be removed.
