While working on a new site for a client, I stumbled upon an application of the Leahy/Langridge method of image replacement… to images. As far as I know, it had not been attempted before and, frankly, I was a little amazed it worked.

The technique, which I am calling iIR for img Image Replacement (a bit of a mouthful, I know), helps you keep you code leaner and meaner without sacrificing stylability or accessibility. You can read the article on the Easy Designs and feel free to drop your comments below. Maybe you can think of a better name for it too.
