Link that looks like a Button

Buttons can look like links and it's great.
I sometimes need links that look like Buttons (and I don't want to go to photoshop to create bitmaps ;-) or to digg my css.

myLink.setStyleName("button");

This would apply use the same layout as the current theme when creating a button.

        > Why not use a button directly, instead of a link?

        A button is not bookmarkable. Let's think web ;-)

        Sampler has a ActiveLink that can work both as a link and as a button - I think it might be a good idea to expand on this idea, an make is so that it can look like either a button or a link.

        Button goes through the server... On the other hand - this has the benefit of submitting all the changes at the same time explicitly....
