Hi Murray,

Paste and then enter the following. Then select the output cell and 
choose Generate Palette form Selection from your File menu.

     StyleBox[" Evaluate ", FontFamily->"Helvetica",
       FontWeight->"Bold", FontColor->RGBColor[0.75,0,0]],
     ButtonEvaluator->Automatic, ButtonMinHeight->1.5,
