It was hard to pick which song to post here, these kids do everything perfectly.
Malarkey has posted an interesting article about…well, semantics and design…over on his “Stuff and Nonesense” blog. He has some interesting thoughts about when to place images in HTML as opposed to CSS, and the impact of design on the content you are presenting.
