Information

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.
