CSS Zen Garden
CSS Zen Garden is a famously featured website for advocating the CSS design and development. Dave Shea's idea was "a demonstration of what can be accomplished visually through CSS-based design." and it is an amazing forum for ideas and better standard web development.

Using obvious eastern elements and religious icons, the CSS concept emphasises holistic design, for example the wither branch at the top of the page draws down to the fallen leaves at the footer. ^ top
