That seems to be a gambling term. I think I get the gist of it. You'll
have to go easier on me though, I'm too young for these sayings.

Anyway, to comment on degradation and accessibility, here's what I've seen:

- Text with a background image: always great.

- A background image with the text completely hidden: when images are
off, you see nothing. example: stylegala.com

- An inline image that degrades to alt text: so far, when the image
degrades to text, the text is there, but obscured, jumping on hover,
and hidden when the text is made larger when the technique is applied
to the anchor. examples: the links I gave before

So is javascript the most accessible technique for image link
rollovers? So far, it seems that way. :(
