i am almost new to css and html, i usually search google for the code i needed and do some modification to work for me.

currently i want to implement a button in my blogger blog <snip>
whose css code is as follow.

.button a {
display: block;
height: 50px;
width: 200px;

/*TYPE*/
color: white;
font: 17px/50px Helvetica, Verdana, sans-serif;
text-decoration: none;
text-align: center;
text-transform: uppercase;

/*GRADIENT*/
background: #00b7ea; /* Old browsers */
background: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #00b7ea 0%, #009ec3 100%); /* FF3.6+ */
background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(0%,#00b7ea), color-stop(100%,#009ec3)); /* Chrome,Safari4+ */
background: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #00b7ea 0%,#009ec3 100%); /* Chrome10+,Safari5.1+ */
background: -o-linear-gradient(top, #00b7ea 0%,#009ec3 100%); /* Opera 11.10+ */
background: -ms-linear-gradient(top, #00b7ea 0%,#009ec3 100%); /* IE10+ */
background: linear-gradient(top, #00b7ea 0%,#009ec3 100%); /* W3C */
filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient( startColorstr='#00b7ea', endColorstr='#009ec3',GradientType=0 ); /* IE6-9 */
}

.button a, p {
-webkit-border-radius: 10px;
-moz-border-radius: 10px;
border-radius: 10px;

-webkit-box-shadow: 2px 2px 8px rgba(0,0,0,0.2);
-moz-box-shadow: 2px 2px 8px rgba(0,0,0,0.2);
box-shadow: 2px 2px 8px rgba(0,0,0,0.2);
}

p {
background: #222;
display: block;
height: 40px;
width: 180px;
margin: -50px 0 0 10px;

/*TYPE*/
text-align: center;
font: 12px/45px Helvetica, Verdana, sans-serif;
color: #fff;

/*POSITION*/
position: absolute;
z-index: -1;

/*TRANSITION*/
-webkit-transition: margin 0.5s ease;
-moz-transition: margin 0.5s ease;
-o-transition: margin 0.5s ease;
-ms-transition: margin 0.5s ease;
transition: margin 0.5s ease;
}

/*HOVER*/
.button:hover .bottom {
margin: -10px 0 0 10px;
}

.button:hover .top {
margin: -80px 0 0 10px;
line-height: 35px;
}

/*ACTIVE*/
.button a:active {
background: #00b7ea; /* Old browsers */
background: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #00b7ea 36%, #009ec3 100%); /* FF3.6+ */
background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(36%,#00b7ea), color-stop(100%,#009ec3)); /* Chrome,Safari4+ */
background: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #00b7ea 36%,#009ec3 100%); /* Chrome10+,Safari5.1+ */
background: -o-linear-gradient(top, #00b7ea 36%,#009ec3 100%); /* Opera 11.10+ */
background: -ms-linear-gradient(top, #00b7ea 36%,#009ec3 100%); /* IE10+ */
background: linear-gradient(top, #00b7ea 36%,#009ec3 100%); /* W3C */
filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient( startColorstr='#00b7ea', endColorstr='#009ec3',GradientType=0 ); /* IE6-9 */

}

.button:active .bottom {
margin: -20px 0 0 10px;
}

.button:active .top {
margin: -70px 0 0 10px;
}


and here is html to use this css code.

<div class="button">
<a href="#">Download</a>
<p class="top">click to begin</p>
<p class="bottom">1.2MB .zip</p>
</div>

Now problem is that it does not work exactly as it should, i think that is because of p tag, it might have already defined in my template, so how can i use this p tag styling specific to this class only? i hope you have got my point.


Looking forward.

Give us a hint. How should it work, and how does it work? At least 95% of the code is purely concerned with how it looks. First get it working right; then you can put its pretty clothes on.

That's setting aside the absolutely jaw-dropping number of cutting-edge vendor-specific style specifications, providing lots of chances for a browser to not do exactly what you want it to do.

Why is the <a flopping around loose in a div when its immediate neighbors are inside paragraphs?
