I gave up my animation effect for now because it looks good in
Firefox 1.04 only.

Firefox 1.5 did it as well, except that it drew a black border around
the button after clicking and it moved the button too far so that I got
a jitter in bar height.

The IE5 or IE6 completely ignore my :active CSS and did their own
animation effect with the buttons after clicking. I haven't found a way
to change this behaviour.

Maybe we would get better control over the buttons if they were links
instead of forms but I don't know if this is applicable.
