What are the little plus symbols on some avionics equipment for? Some seem to have a tiny little '+' at various places on radios and other do-hickeys which screw into panels.

P.S. Speaking of panel backlighting, here's a dirty trick to play on (A) crew you don't like and (B) those who don't already know better.
If your plane has an autopilot engage paddle like on the DC-9/8's and probably the MD-80's, engage the autopilot, get the sucker to "feel how hot the back lighting makes the area just below the paddle", when they feel it, kick the autopilot off with the yoke disconnect button. If all goes well, it will smash their finger.
