    Oh, and it works in a form, as an input element.
    It’s just the background image, the rounded corners are created by using CSS borders.

    I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve come across websites with atrocious looking buttons lol. These are all pretty simple yet very nice. My favorite has to be the CSS Submit Buttons. With that said though, I like the submit button of this site!

    Very nice list of buttons. Do you have more? We have been looking to do our site in a more web 2.0 look, not sure if we are completly going to 2.0 though.

    I was trying to learn how to code in CSS and got stuck with the “look” I wanted. Good thing I stumbled upon this. Great job, it was really helpful.

    Here’s my new button. It’s like the sliding doors button, but obviously can’t be using sliding doors, because the transparent parts won’t cover the other half. I called it “the levitating submit button”, since works as a submit, and donesn’t use extra markup to achieve the same result. Same transparent, 1 single image, doesn’t depend on opaque corners to hide a thing or on a same-color background, uses less code.

    Wow, this is a stepping stone for me to start learning CSS, who knows someday I might develop my own WP themes from this tutorial. Thanks in advance :)

    Sliding doors without a doubt. Great tutorial and easy to use (well, relatively speaking). CSS3 is the future – its pretty awesome to see what it can do. Actually, the one downside I’ve found is compatability with Opera….but hey, you can’t win them all.
