Web Design Tip – Don’t use graphics if text will work just as well.
Sometimes, you may be tempted to put some text in an image to display on the web page. However, in almost all cases, text is the best thing to use in your design. Here are a few reasons why:
About the only time to create text as an image is if you absolutely must use an artsy or abstract text font and there is a high probability that most of your site visitors won’t have that particular font installed on their machines. In a case such as that, you will probably have to create that text as an image. Just remember to make use of the ALT attribute so that the image is correctly described to screen reading programs and Search Engine robots.
