#8525 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Swap "Remove widget" and "Done" buttons around.

In most UIs, the button that indicates a positive action (i.e saving a widget's contents) is usually on the right hand side of the interface and kept away from the negative action buttons. Also, the positive action button is usually differentiated from the negative ones - usually by slight shading.

The case in point is the edit widget screen where it is too easy to inadvertently select the "remove widget" button instead of "done", especially for new users.

It should be noted that the Widget administration panel is going to receive an overhaul or additional work in WordPress 2.8. Therefore, while I agree, it might be too late to achieve this for 2.7.

I noticed that, for example, the Quick Edit save buttons are blue - is it too much to ask for the CSS class to be changed?
