Website Buttons: I am looking for a certain type of website button. [MI]

I am looking for a specific and simple type of navigation element. They are rectangular buttons of equal size, connected to each other and outlined in straight solid colors. They are not beveled, but *perhaps* they utilize a few extra pixel lines that add depth or a beveled effect. The navigation element may contain a gradient too. I can see an example in my head, but I really wish I could find an example online.

Also... I'm having a tough time finding a good site where I can find a ton of different *quality* web buttons. Google turns up thousands of pages of crap. I am also looking for new and innovative navigation ideas. So if you have any such resources, I would also be very appreciative.

I would check at or any other javascript site. The buttons you speak of are very easily made and a search around script sites ( should carry many results.

Even better, don't use graphics for your buttons, but use CSS instead. You can make things which look like graphical buttons, but which are infinitely easier to change and manage without stupid server side tricks.

List-O-Matic can help you make nice, accessible, CSS-based navigation that will look like buttons but be a whole lot better.
