In order to create the icons, this set of CSS3 buttons uses HTML entities.
Why use entities rather than images?
- Faster loading, because we’re talking about text here.
- Scalable, depending on font size.
- Styles as color and background are easy to update via CSS.
<a href="" class="button">Button</a>
Simple button, with no icon.
<a href="" class="button add">Add</a>
add class adds the plus icon.
Rendering & browsers support
The icons are added using the
:before pseudo-element. Therefore, you won’t see any icons in browsers like IE7 and below, but the buttons will look good yet.
Please suggest improvements and/or additions that should be made. Also let me know if you branch it to use different colours (or other?). Thanks!
The CSS has been copied to github without the author's permission, in order to create a backup and allow branching for colour themes and additions.
