I have a html page called ButtonTest.html

Here is the code for it:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>

<style type="text/css">
/* In Firefox, the button element gets a bit of extra height that you can partially eliminate using this declaration */  
button::-moz-focus-inner {
  border: 0; }

/* skip (inspired by okcupid iphone interface)

When I run my page i get this:

my page when I run it

I simply have two buttons on my page and I'm trying to style both buttons using CSS.

Button 1 worked.

But my problem is styling button2.  Button2 should look just like Button.

Anyone know where I'm making a mistake. How do I fix it to add the same navy blue style that button1 has to button2?

A button tag and an input tag with a type of button are not the same to CSS. To apply your style, try changing

button.skip {

to

button.skip, input[type="button"].skip {

If you want the same style applied to both BUTTONS, make sure tha Button2 is actually a button. This will allow you to keep your CSS for just one type of element in case you want a separate style for <input? later...

<button class="skip" id="Button2">Button2</button>
