I believe Will is referring to this image:


The idea being that the important text contained in this image -- 
'Florapedia - Inside info on flowers and plants' -- will not be picked 
up by search engines, or by non-graphical user agents. The first text 
they will see is 'Birthday Decorating On a Budget'.

But otherwise a nice, clean page.
