          An experiment in making Flat-UI buttons appear more interactive. 
          Flat-UI is very pretty, but it has usability problems with indicating
          interactivty. Buttons are especially a problem for me. This is an 
          experiment to do a better job at indicating interactivity. Colors
          are borrowed from <a href="https://designmodo.github.com/Flat-UI/">Flat
          UI</a>.
        </p>
        <p>The css for this experiment is not a library, it's just a one-off
        experiment.</p>
