I've recently been working on some concepts for a redesign of a site that uses a text-resizing widget. The audience for the site is primarily seniors, so large text is important. And, before you start shouting that people should use their browser's built-in support for this, many visitors to the site are unaware of such wonderful tools and really appreciate a solution built into the site.
Then, I noticed a little problem. Sure, the text resizes brilliantly, but none of the textual images do. This site has some important persistent branding on every page and several pieces contain reasonably small text. Well, I was in the middle of using the Phark image replacement technique anyway, which makes the title images backgrounds set in the style sheet. So, if I mix the two techniques together (Phark's and Sowden's) I replace each of the title graphics in the CSS so they can 'resize' with the text.
This is by no means revolutionary and I wouldn't be surprised to learn someone else has done this before. But, in either case, it's a handy combination of some other peoples' ideas. Hope you find it useful.See the Working Example »
