Have you ever wanted to style your inline links as if they were blocks? Well it will be possible when all browsers include the style 'inline-block', but until then this is one way to do it.
No messing around with 'display:block;' / 'display:inline; / float:left; etc. this method, seen above, uses nothing more than a 'textarea' which is basically an inline block.
It is valid to place a textarea within a link and then style this to remove the default styles and replace them with your own. This includes background images, width, height, font-size, font-family, line-height etc. and using these we can produce a rollover background image change (well a background-position change) and have lovely inline block links.
Tested in IE6, IE7, Firefox, Opera, Safari(PC) and Google Chrome. Opera doesn't quite get the vertical text position right.

Now we can use inline-blocks in all modern browsers.
Because of all the time and effort spent in producing this demonstration I would ask that you respect my copyright.
