It’s amazing what you can learn in the doctor’s waiting room.

Nate was playing with the big toy – the one where you move all the beads back and forth across the wires – and I took a minute to check out a web design question I had, surfing the web on my phone.

I stumbled across this CSS tip for styling buttons… and, as it turns out, everything else.

I’ve been out of the loop on cutting-edge web design techniques, so I didn’t know you could now do rounded corners and drop shadows in CSS. And, as it turns out, you can use these techniques on more than just buttons.

You can style any element this way. Even block quotes. Or paragraphs. Heck, you could probably style a <span> this way.

And that’s pretty cool.
