It's always fun to take a look around and see where the ever changing world of web design is going.
From a visual point of view, we are seeing much more use of gradients, and sites with out gradients are looking more and more out of date. In the old days(like 2 years ago), the less images used the better, but not with high bandwidth on the rise more designers have taken the attitude of "if you don't have broadband too bad". Which is interesting because we are also seeing a rise in internet use from cell phones and other pda's which run on a much slower network.
To address this paradox properly the best thing to do is to have two css style sheets, one for traditional web browsers and one for PDAs. Except that i-phones render the web more like a traditional browser which will ignore the "pda" style sheet, but still be on the slower network.
