Doing it with style

Now we are on a roll :)

This demonstration works in Firefox, Safari and Google Chrome and shows how to style buttons using just border radius, drop shadows and gradient fills.

No graphics have been used in this demo and no extra markup. If you wanted to be adventurous you could also add a hover state change of gradient fill to give an illumination effect.

When Opera support transitions I will add this to the demo, and when IE9 is released we will see if that too will support any CSS3 styles.

Because of all the time and effort spent in producing this demonstration I would ask that you respect my copyright.

  1. If you are using this on a personal web site then please retain the copyright comment in the stylesheet.
    A support donation is now required for this demonstration.
  2. If you are using this on a commercial web site, or as a paying job for a client, then please email me asking for permission - stu{at} and again a support donation is required.
  3. If you are having problems integrating any of my demonstrations into your website then I now offer a service to fault find and correct any errors that you may have introduced. Please email me for more information.
