it kind of an overly intellectual point, but it is a good one. The "Netscape
Now" logo's are so common I doubt anyone thought it. The problem I see with
text/css only logo is that a logo is usually considered a graphical device
(or display type like a rebus). A CSS logo would just be text. And right now
you could not depend on fancy fonts being installed. You could only use
Comic Sans (which I like) and Verdana (which I don't). So how would a CSS
font look any different than what someone could do with <font>? We might
have to wait until CSS is further deployed before creating a CSS logo in CSS.
