Well there are only two possible choices then..

1. Have both the Google logo and a GO/SEARCH button.

2. Make a custom Google logo + button.

The second is likely not possible given the rules of the Google search

Yes. Exactly the same conclusion I came to when I switch to have the
links underlined.

I actually agree.. My first attempt was to use the "dotted" underlines
and the do look much better than the "dashed". But that brings up
another unfortunate browser issue: IE doesn't support the "dotted"
borders and displays "dashed" borders instead.

Guess I'll have to try and draw my own borders for this :-\ -- Or just
make IE users suffer the less pleasing look.
