When you modify a paypal button through paypal, is the button automatically updated on your website? Another words, is the button hosted through paypal?

Say for example, I set my products weights per item in order for shipping to be calculated based on the carts TOTAL weight. If I changed the weight in each of my buttons to a more accurate weight and saved it within paypal, will it automatically take effect?

For those really good with html can probably know just by looking at the html of a button.

Does the following code update automatically when changed through PayPal?...

<form target="paypal" action="" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick">
<input type="hidden" name="hosted_button_id" value="11125789">
<input type="image" src="" border="0" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!">
<img alt="" border="0" src="" width="1" height="1">

It may Donald. Sometimes they change the picture all together for whatever reason. But yes, most likely it does update.
