CSS Zen Garden: an example of style over substance

CSS heavy web pages on display at CSS Zen Garden look great.  They make you stand up and shout "Wow!"  Now, try to read the textual content.  If you managed to keep your eyes focused on the page after reading the first few paragraphs, you did better than me.  It's like trying to read in the middle of Time Square at night.  In their pursuit of beauty, they succeeded only in catching vanity.
