| 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.

Its not so much the font, as it is what you do with the letters, color,
margins, maybe even a small graphic element at the base (a
background?)...
