Thats funny, because out of the three designs that I did, the client 
ended up picking the one that looks similar to what your describing 
here. Then they requested changes that makes almost exactly the same.

The other two designs where much more interesting and probably would 
have been easier to build in CSS. Actually now that i look at them 
again, one was more interesting.
