[thelist] CSS 0px image replacement

I'm looking into image replacement using CSS and have a good idea on the 
various popular methods mentioned on the main sites, however one technique I 
noticed whist looking at someones source doesn't seem to documented widely.

Rather than shoving the text off the screen with a huge negative indent, the 
text size was set to 0 (and a background image loaded in for the div). This 
seemed a neater (and nicer) way of doing things.

I was wondering if screen readers actually read text with a size of 0? Are 
there any issues with this sort of image replacement?

Many thanks!
- Danny.
