How can I prevent my button from being mangled?

Tags: html,css

Problem :

I have a css styled button that is being completely mangled and showing strangely on multiple lines. However if the button is set as a input instead of a link the button looks perfect. How can I get my link button to look the same as the input button?

Here is an example:


<div style="width: 200px;">
    <table style="width:80%;">
            <td style=" text-align: left;   vertical-align: middle;">
                <BR>    <a class="btn" target="_parent" href="index.php?ts=fq">Daily&#x00A;Starting from:&#x00A;$15.22</a>

            <td style=" width: 4%; text-align: left;    vertical-align: middle; text-align:right;">
                <input type="submit" value="6 Month Plans Starting from: $75.36" style="width:90px; top:50px; height:115px; white-space: normal;" class="btn">


.btn {

    background: #FFCC02;

    border: none;

    padding: 10px 25px 10px 25px;

    color: #585858;

    border-radius: 4px;

    -moz-border-radius: 4px;

    -webkit-border-radius: 4px;

    text-shadow: 1px 1px 1px #FFE477;

    font-weight: bold;

    box-shadow: 1px 1px 1px #3D3D3D;

    -webkit-box-shadow:1px 1px 1px #3D3D3D;

    -moz-box-shadow:1px 1px 1px #3D3D3D;


.btn:hover {

    color: #333;

    background-color: #EBEBEB;


The button on the left is mangled, but the button on the right looks perfect.

Solution :

A button is an inline element.

Give it a display: block; or display: inline-block;
