I’m playing with a new theme for my blog, and wanted a better way to let people quickly scan for how many posts I had. So I used a background image of black, offset with background-position in css to let a graph “show through” to show the count.
I’ve also posted the PHP and CSS code for WordPress to make this work: http://gist.github.com/artlung/304290
