bbUI buttons always stretching

I'm having a bit of a problem using the bbUI buttons.


When I type in this:

 <div data-bb-type="button" onclick="alert('Hello!');">Hello</div>

 I'm expecting a button to just surround the word "Hello", but in reality, (at least in Ripple), the button shows up as stretched across the entire screen!


What's going on here? I'm using the latest version of bbUI (0.9.4) for both the .js and the .css file.
