I'm trying to wrap a single letter on a button in a span so I can target it with CSS for a hover effect. Any ideas how I can achieve this?

I have recreated a SQSP button inside a code block to show how this would look but, 'm guessing this work around would mess with the client's button conversion analytics and it's going to be impossible for me to use this workaround for other block buttons such as the form buttons etc.

Any help would be AMAZING!



Here is what I've done for the work around

Code block html:

<div class="sqs-block button-block sqs-block-button" data-block-type="53" id="block-yui_3_17_2_1_1643232400177_2264"><div class="sqs-block-content" id="yui_3_17_2_1_1643720042987_387">

<div class="sqs-block-button-container--center" data-animation-role="button" data-alignment="center" data-button-size="medium" data-button-type="primary" id="yui_3_17_2_1_1643720042987_386">
	<a href="" class="sqs-block-button-element--medium sqs-button-element--primary sqs-block-button-element" data-initialized="true">
    Bo<span class="btn-o-float">o</span>k Now

And the CSS so far:

.sqs-block-button-element:hover .btn-o-float {
  color: red;
  position: relative;
  font-size: smaller;
  top: -3px;
  margin: 0.09em;
