UtilityButton acts as inline page navigation and should always be used in groups of two or more, compared to the Button component which is designed to work as a standalone element and performs the role of a call-to-action (CTA).

If including close to the maximum number of utility buttons be sure to set

flexprop is how we achieve equal heights for the utility buttons when the content lengths differ.
