there are no on-demand images on that page in the dynamic-html sense. I
create the buttons at "make dist" time, e.g. when my local html pages get
published to goof.com

hey, lynx should work great with my pages ;) at least, as much as lynx can
be called great.

all my friends say: well, the idea is nice, but the images are butt-ugly ;)

in other projects of mine I *do* plan to dynamically create buttons (of
course heavily cached). If you look at why "traditional" web design is
so expensive the reason (partly!) seems to be the major time effort:
redrawing buttons (and other elements) again and again. actions don't help
that much (many artists don't know how to use it). Of course, writing perl
scripts won't help in that case, too ;)
