I must be obsessing about this topic. In any case, I was reading Web Standards Creativity: Innovations in Web Design With XHTML, CSS, And DOM by Cameron Adams and decided to look at one of the featured sites, www.dirtyprettythingsband.com.

While the site looks great, just try making the text size larger and suddenly that cool ragged background image behind the menu items just loses its impact and the words run together. UGH!
