Ok, download the example files and lets start coding !


Step 1. HTML

Here are full html code of our result. Pay attention to classes of buttons. In our experiment I used 2 different types of buttons. Each type have own behavior. Each button consist of few inner SPAN elements.

index.html

    <body>
        <div class="container" id="container">
            <div class="buttons">
                <a href="#" class="but1">
                    <span class="icon"></span>
                    <span class="title">Button #1</span>
                    <span class="icon2"></span>
                </a>
                <a href="#" class="but1">
                    <span class="icon"></span>
                    <span class="title">Button #2</span>
                    <span class="icon2"></span>
                </a>
                <a href="#" class="but1">
                    <span class="icon"></span>
                    <span class="title">Button #3</span>
                    <span class="icon2"></span>
                </a>
                <div style="clear:both"></div>
                <a href="#" class="but2">

                    <span class="icon"></span>
                </a>
                <a href="#" class="but2">
                    <span class="title">Try to search</span>
                    <span class="extra"><input type="text" /></span>
                    <span class="icon"></span>
                </a>
                <a href="#" class="but2">
                    <span class="title">Subscribe</span>
                    <span class="extra"><input type="text" /></span>
                    <span class="icon"></span>
                </a>

        <footer>

        </footer>
    </body>
</html>

Step 2. CSS

Now – our CSS styles. First file is page layout

css/main.css

/* page layout */
*{
    margin:0;
    padding:0;
}
body {
    color:#fff;
    font:14px/1.3 Arial,sans-serif;
    background:transparent url(../images/bg.gif) repeat top left;
}
footer {
    background-color:#212121;
    bottom:0;
    box-shadow: 0 -1px 2px #111111;
    -moz-box-shadow: 0 -1px 2px #111111;
    -webkit-box-shadow: 0 -1px 2px #111111;
    display:block;
    height:70px;
    left:0;
    position:fixed;
    width:100%;
    z-index:100;
}
footer h2{
    font-size:22px;
    font-weight:normal;
    left:50%;
    margin-left:-400px;
    padding:22px 0;
    position:absolute;
    width:540px;
}
footer a.stuts,a.stuts:visited{
    border:none;
    text-decoration:none;
    color:#fcfcfc;
    font-size:14px;
    left:50%;
    line-height:31px;
    margin:23px 0 0 110px;
    position:absolute;
    top:0;
}
footer .stuts span {
    font-size:22px;
    font-weight:bold;
    margin-left:5px;
}
.container {
    margin:20px auto;
    padding:20px;
    position:relative;
    width:800px;
}

And now – styles of our buttons

css/buttons.css

/*buttons #1*/
.buttons {
