One of the most useful front-end development techniques of recent years is the humble "CSS Sprites". The technique was popularised by Dave Shea on A List Apart in 2004 with his article CSS Sprites: Image Slicing's Kiss of Death. CSS Sprites are a relatively simple technique once you understand the fundamentals and it can be applied in all manner of ways. A common use is for a graphic intensive navigation, but it can also be useful for buttons or even styling headings with the corporate font.

Sprites are simply a collection of images which are merged together to create a single file. You then use CSS, changing the background-position the image, to display the correct part of the image you need. I often use the analogy of a large object passing a window - you only see what is within the frame.
