Pseudo white border on buttons

Pseudo white border on buttons

Here's how we fix a common issue with buttons in Internet Explorer...

As usual, Internet Explorer complicates things again by adding a 1px border inside styled buttons with a background image. This obviously looks odd! Here’s how we fix it.

The 1px border is a slither of the element’s background colour showing through. To fix this, set the background colour to the border colour¬†or content’s colour.

For example:

.button { 
  background: #b0c8e7 url('btn.png') repeat-x; 
  border-color: #b0c8e7;
