They're CSS styles, I'm using inline for demonstrative purposes.
I'd load images because the CSS <image> spec is more powerful than the 
HTML image spec,
offering things like -webkit-canvas (soon -element), various background 
sizing and fitting routines.

Accessibility is maintained exactly as it was, you'd put the alt 
attribute in the image tag.
