How to make sexy buttons with CSS - Improved

Yesterday I visitted an blog entry by Alex Griffioen about making sexy buttons with CSS. It was a good tutorial for on how to use CSS. When I looked at his implementation, I was missing a hover effect on the button, so I decided the modify his implementation to make the hover effect possible.

As explained by Alex, the sexy button is created by using the Sliding doors technique and uses background image shifting to create the pressed state. By expanding the background image we can have a hover state on the button. The only thing need to be done is to add the :hover state with the correct vertical alignment for the background. The most difficult during this whole process was the correct modification of the background images

You can see the demo here.
