Here is the link:
http://terrainformatica.com/w3/like-a-button.htm

it contains referential button that you can try. Please do this in IE as
other browsers did not manage to make button press right, I suspect for
reasons that I've mentioned.

And now click on button-alike-span - that is how it should be done ideally
(consider this as requirement at least).

As you see I was forced to use <span><label>text</label></span> but
I would like to avoid use of that label element - it is redundant.
Ideally CSS should allow to do such simple things.

[snipped]

Here's a recap of the proposed testcases so far with 3 customized
(according to my tastes,... although line-height: 1.25 is almost necessary
here):

A button-like span shift/offset its text by 1px when :activated, version 1:

A button-like span shift/offset its text by 1px when :activated, version 
1.1:
http://www.gtalbot.org/BrowserBugsSection/css21testsuite/button-like-span-activated-moves-left-v1.1.html

A button-like span shift/offset its text by 1px when :activated, version 2:
http://www.gtalbot.org/BrowserBugsSection/css21testsuite/button-like-span-activated-moves-left-v2.html

A button-like span shift/offset its text by 1px when :activated, version 
2.1:
http://www.gtalbot.org/BrowserBugsSection/css21testsuite/button-like-span-activated-moves-left-v2.1.html

A button-like span shift/offset its text by 1px when :activated, version 3:
http://www.gtalbot.org/BrowserBugsSection/css21testsuite/button-like-span-activated-moves-left-v3.html

A button-like span shift/offset its text by 1px when :activated, version 
3.1:
http://www.gtalbot.org/BrowserBugsSection/css21testsuite/button-like-span-activated-moves-left-v3.1.html

All 6 testcases work as expected in Firefox 3.6.13, Opera 11.0, Chrome
8.0.552.224 and Konqueror 4.5.4.

season's greetings, Gérard
