content: ".";
display: block;

visibility: hidden;
}

.chromestyle ul{

If you want margins between buttons, then change the .chromestyle ul li {} css class.


.chromestyle ul li{
display: inline;
margin-left: 10px;
margin-right: 10px;
}

change the margin value as per your need.

To display images before the button label:

<li><a href="#"><img src = "test.gif" /> &nbsp; Button-1</a></li>
