live search macro: change button text "go" to "search"

I use the Live Search macro in my theme. Is there a simple way to change the button name? I would like to rename the text of the button "go" on "search". Thank you for tips

Browse to:

Confluence Admin | Look and Feel | Custom HTML 

In At end of the HEAD, add some JavaScript similar to this:

    AJS.$('.plugin_livesearch_buttonbox input').val('Search');

Wow, you're my hero! :) It works fantastic and I'm happy. However, I have a question about this script. Why do I have to write "val", instead write "value"? In the tag <input type="submit" value="$action.getText('livesearch.macro.go')"> but is also "value" write and not "val"!?

Thank you!

We use .val() because we're using the jQuery method .val() to manipulate the DOM.

This is obviously a jQuery specific question, but do you know if you can set the value to an image rather than simple text? For example, a magnifying glass image?
