The movement of the buttons is achieved using CSS. CSS lets you define a so called pseudo-class a:hover. This class contains the layout of the anchor-element <a> when the mouse hovers over it.

The bookmark-icons below have a html-structure like this:
<a href="url"><img src="imagesource"/></a>

We have to wrap it inside a span, with a unique class, for example:
<span class="pushbutton"><a href="url"><img

In the css-stylesheet we have to define the following style for the new class:
.pushbutton a:hover {position: relative; top: 1px; left: 1px;}
