Yahoo’s Text-Sprite Generator

Some of them called it as Yahoo's secret text sprite generator, because i think yahoo has not publish it officially. This is a pretty cool stuff by yahoo, which will generate a sprite to the text given.

Basically it’s a URL you can hit which will create a perfect sprite-ready PNG graphic of the text you include in the URL. Check it out for yourself:

Here is the url...
http://l.yimg.com/img.sports.yahoo.com/static/bir/headline?txt=webdevelopertut

Just copy the link and paste it in the address bar. You can have your own text just like i have used webdevelopertut. The image generated is always 468×68px and the color is white on top and yellow-orange on the bottom. Where you can use it for hover also.



For SEO, you can use CSS font replacement technique to have both text and image versions.
