The natural progression of CSS buttons has now pushed beyond "sprite images" and into the foray of font based icons.

Worlds Easiest CSS3 Button Tutorial

When load time is important (and it always is) you can leverage the amazing abilities of font's and use them to generate the icons that you use most... and for a great deal of us web designers, that means UX buttons and social networking icons. By utilizing CSS for the framing and an icon font for the visuals - this awesome CSS3 button set gives designers and developers the best of both worlds. All you need to do is include the font files onto your server then use the CSS explained below to generate your icons on the fly.

Including a CSS3 Button Set

Download and unpack. The key elements to the CSS3 button set are the CSS and font files. Once those have been appropriately located on your server, they can be accessed by simply calling the specific class in your link. In this example, I've assigned the Facebook CSS3 button to be called w/ "haeck" and "facebook". You can obviously change the classes to whatever you'd like, but in the demo's case you'd achieve a simple Facebook Sign in link like this...

<a href="" class="haeck icon facebook">Sign in with Facebook</a>

If you'd like to skip the text button and just go with an icon, simply add the icon class...

<a href="" class="haeck icon facebook">Sign in with Facebook</a>
