No button. Just the flag and text.

Most of the remaining dots around the white text are the clear type pixels. Figured better to leave in.
To get approx 100 percent size, reduce "Button size" to 80 for small taskbar, 90 for large taskbar.

Very nice and thank you juniper7. I added a little shadow and glow to hover and pressed states: :P

Thanks, Gaurav for the mod.


Here are some more 100,125,150% sizes made with a technique from fonpaolo.
Using Gimp, I used "Color to Alpha" option, selecting green as the color.

These will tend to be a little sharper as the text is the exact system size.
Oddly enough Microsoft only made a 100% size flag image. The 125/150% sizes had to be faked from a large image on the internet.


EDIT:
The button name might be a little confusing.
It's so glassy you can't even see the glass button. :)
I'm going to make a ported very old XP skin made from an unknown person.
I just had to accomplish making the button first, before starting on the skin itself. I'll upload skin when finished.
