    Graphics used for navigation really suck as far as accessibility
    and SEO. But if you're using a cool CSS image replacement technique,
    then you are a very cool webmaster indeed, and I applaud your efforts.

    But there are many who don't use such accessible techniques (which
    help greatly in SEO as well) - and as a matter of fact, those
    types of websites are the ones who use flash for content, navigation,

    Now, I love eye candy as much as the next guy, and I point you
    all to CSS Zen Garden for excellent ideas and
    examples. But if you're not a CSS guru - or simply don't care...

    Let me tell you - you are committing Overkill suicide on your website!

    You are absolutelly right. Some time ago roll-over navigation was controlled by javascript only bot now same thing can be easily achieved with CSS.

    Images used only as a background and it gives you very SE friendly navigation.

    I even posted simple CSS tutorial how to avoid delay with roll-over images here
