#17: Sliding Doors Button

While sliding doors is far from a new concept and will be obsoleted once we see wider support for multiple backgrounds (CSS3), it is still a good one for your bag-of-tricks. The theory is that if we have an extra hook in our markup, we can apply two overlapping background images to a single spot of text. When that text grows or shrinks, these overlapping images and reveal more of themselves creating the illusion it is a single expandable graphic. In this screencast we do a quickly example of how this can work for a button.

Posting Code

Markdown is supported in the comment area, so you can write inline code in backticks like `this` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like this:

```
<div>Example code</div>
```

You don't need to escape code in backticks, Markdown does that for you. If anything screws up, contact us and we can fix it up for you.
