Ah, the seriocomic has finally come to his senses. No more graphical titles there, just plain text. I have always opposed text as images. I can understand that the title or logo of a site is an image, especially if coupled with modern image replacement techniques. But why do simple entries of a blog or article titles have to be images?
My main issue is simple. Since I started using the Web (ca. late 1994) most sites where text is replaced with images offer poor usability until all of the images load and are generally quite poorly ranked by search engines. Why worry about loading times in the day and age of DSL? Simply because techniques like GRPS and other mobile methods still have very limited speeds. And bandwidth costs in any case. Thank you Mike in taking a step towards a saner direction.
