Believe it or not, I created the buttons in the demo without using a single image. Normally, this kind of button is so complex that designers create the finished buttons as images rather than spending the time to style them using CSS. CSS for this type of thing is error prone and typically requires the use of multiple background images.
CSS3 makes it possible to achieve this effect without images. And Compass makes it easy to use these advanced CSS3 features in a concise way that works across modern browsers.
