Initial Description
Using a sprite is a good idea as it lowers the HTTP-Request. Here is a simple example on how to use this technique. Using a sprite, we can create the hover effect by changing the position of the background image down to a certain height to show the background to the button on hover. A simple yet effective technique. The drawback of using multiple sprites on an image is that you cannot repeat it.
