CSS Zen Garden

http://www.csszengarden.com/?cssfile=/052/052.css&page=0

The CSS Zen Garden is a showcase site for what can be achieved with CSS. Designers are invited to redesign the site using only CSS - the HTML is fixed and may not be altered, as "a demonstration of what can be accomplished visually through CSS based design." The Garden gets a lot of submissions from all over the world so I consider it a real honour to get a design selected.
