Silkscreen Button

A colloquial term for one of the hard buttons found in the button bar below the screen of early Newton devices, including the OMP, MessagePad 100, MessagePad 110, MessagePad 120, and MessagePad 130. So called because the icon representing each button is silkscreened onto the surface of the device.

Also referred to as a silk button.
