    Modify <a> into a button image

    The pure <a></a> only displays as a link. But I saw it can be modified into a button like image. For instance, <a class="xxxx" href="xxxxx.com"> Some Name</a>. This is achieved POSSIBLY via the class attribute.

    How could it be done?

    Your request is unclear to me, so this is just a SWAG...
    Code:
    <!DOC HTML>
    <html>
    <head>
    <title> Untitled </title>
    <style type="text/css">
    .anchorButton { height:75px; width:100px; }
    </style>
    </head>
    <body>
    <a href="#" onclick="alert('Go someplace');return false">
     <img src="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/92/Easy_button.JPG" class="anchorButton">
    </a>
    <br>
    <a href="#" onclick="alert('Go someplace else');return false">
     <img src="http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m8s5qtbyI41qe1z7co1_400.gif" class="anchorButton">
    </a>
    </body>
    </html>

    HTML Code:
    <style type="text/css">
      .button {
        padding: 5px;
        background: #ddd;
        border-top: 1px solid #eee; border-left: 1px solid #eee;
        border-bottom: 1px solid #ccc; border-right: 1px solid #ccc;
      }
      .button:hover {
        padding: 5px;
        background: #ddd;
        border-top: 1px solid #ccc; border-left: 1px solid #ccc;
        border-bottom: 1px solid #eee; border-right: 1px solid #eee;
      }
    </style>
    <a href="http://www.google.com/" class="button">Button</a>
    Something like that?
