Print Story Doing the CSS/HTML impossible: clickable BKG IMG
It's impossible to make a background image in CSS clickable. There are work-arounds which don't work, tricks that don't truck, and solutions that the authors vote up with their sock puppets.

Necessity of invention is a mother. (endnote: had to set to text-only; any tags b0rked everything into unreadableness).

Civilisation is truly in decline.

Because he boinked some fat blonde a few times there's a photographer who now has a kid and half a billion dollars or so, proof to the porn industry that you don't have to pull out for the money shot. Had he just shot his load all over her not-inconsequential ass, we might actually hear some real news, like, say, the subpoena duces tecum Congress sent the US Department of Justice for documents on the Attorneys General firings. Or not. Blind pilots? What's next, iPods for the deaf?

It's no better here. "Check out Feature XXX! Feast your eyes on Feature YYY!! Set your very own colour scheme!!!" And what about the big, gaping CSS security hole? "Pay no attention to that monkey in the corner. We're feature-rich! We're innovating!"

We're a bunch of fuckwits.

So, I've got a page that needs a few checkboxes. And I've got only so much space to fit them into. There aren't many options left... the labels are as abbreviated as they reasonably can be. They can't be sized any smaller, not without people squinting. And other widget/gui approaches are even uglier.
