Button

Use <a> for navigation, <button> for everything else. Submit/reset buttons are the only exceptions, using <input[type="submit"]> to trigger default browser behaviour associated with submitting form input. Buttons should follow a typographic scale, based on importance and base font-size.

Inverted

px

			
				<button class="a-button a-button--inverted ">

Primary

The primary button is the default button and should only be used for the main actions. Only one primary button should be used next to each other when used in a call-to-action context.
