Links and form buttons are different HTML elements.  CSS can be used
to make links look similar to form buttons (as Carlos has shown), but
it's difficult to make them identical.

If you really need your links to look like buttons then I would
suggest defining an alternate link markup (or over-riding the existing
markup) to produce button elements instead of links.  You could do
this by creating an individual form for each button with a different
action=X property, but this is probably going to cause difficulties
with having different forms defined in different locations.

One creative alternative I just saw when I briefly googled this looks like this:

<a href="#"><button>Link Text</button></a>

Hope that helps.
