BonBon Buttons - Sweet CSS3 buttons There was a goal: Create CSS buttons that are sexy looking, really flexible, but with the most minimalistic markup as possible. And voila.. here they are, the BonBon Buttons. Named after the French word for "Candy". So, let's take a tour trough the candy store. No, wait! Before you click that download button and try to use them on your site, please also read the flaws. Markup I get a real kick out of trying to keep the markup minimal, so I'm really happy with the outcome. You can change the look by adding more classes: <a href="" class="button orange glossy">Label</a> Label Icons Accessibility Addingrole="button" makes it more accessible. Looks I tried to avoid any images but couldn't resist adding a PNG for the noise. A border-radius doesn't always need to be rounded. For the colors HSL values are used.

Pure CSS social media icons (experimental) This is an experiment that creates social media icons using CSS and semantic HTML. It uses progressive enhancement to turn an unordered list of text links into a set of icons without the use of images or JavaScript. Demo: Pure CSS social media icons Support: Firefox 3.5+, Safari 4+, Chrome 4+, Opera 10+, IE8+. The image below shows you the final appearance in modern browsers. This experiment starts with a simple list of links, with each link using meaningful text, and then progressively styles each link to take on the appearance of the relevant social media icon. I’ve also included basic text in the title attribute of each link to provide information for users who may not be familiar with what service a specific icon represents. This is an experiment that uses CSS 2.1 and CSS3 that is not supported by Internet Explorer 6 and 7, therefore, you shouldn’t expect it to work in those browsers. Example code The technique I’ve used is much the same as the one used for the Pure CSS speech bubbles.
