's Pretty!

Yesterday, as part of my research into how to use web tech. I stumbled across the CSS Zen garden: a pretty cool demo site that demonstrates the power of separating form and function, while allowing various graphical artists to show off.

The main site consists of one html page. The idea is to manipulate the appearance and layout as much as possible by means of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).

So: the information is fixed. How it is presented is up to you. You can:
  • choose from a variety of submitted layouts, or
  • download the site to your PC and mess about yourself, or
  • submit your own work (make sure it works on 'standard' browsers, though!)
However, I have to say that I think it a bit of a cheat that different images are allowed. If a picture's worth a thousand words, how many html tags is it?
