It looks fine to me.
BTW. Over state did not have different gradient color. Only stroke color 
was changed from grey to white.

it setting its base colour using chromeColor.

this Thomasz? At the moment instead of using a base color with white/black/alpha gradients
and blendModes, all gradients are coloured there is a deferent set for each state. Event though
this is the case, and the over state uses different colours in its gradient, they are so close
to the up gradients that you don't see any change on rollover.
> What I've done if re-created the up and down states as best I could using the technique
I mentioned above. There is a state missing compared to the FLA provided, due to the fact
that although the colours are ever so slightly different, you can not see it with the eye
so I have left it out, which now means the just see the base colour background for this state.

I thought this look kind of strange when you clicked, so I've also added a second colour that
used the down state for over, and just show the base colour when down.
