StringInput Question

The following is is a test for a button that prompts for inputting a 
string to be written to a notebook.

*Cell[BoxData[
ButtonBox["TEST",
Active->True,
BaseStyle->"Paste",
ButtonFunction:>
FrontEndExecute[{
content =
InputString["New Tag"];
nb = SelectedNotebook[];
NotebookWrite[nb,
Cell[content, "Text"]];
Clear[content];
Clear[nb]}],
Evaluator->
"Local"]], "Text",
FontFamily->"Arial",*
*FontWeight->"Bold"]*

Run in V6.01, when the dialog box for StringInput is closed without 
input, the string

$Canceled

is written to the selected notebook.

The desired behavior (which I think occurred in V5.01, though I have no 
easy way to check now) is that when the dialog box for StringInput is 
closed without input, nothing is written. How can this be obtained with 
V6.01?

Any help much appreciated.
