I was just using google maps and thinking about how the rendering engine, contemplating how much work it would be to plot a map like that using dhtml elements 1 pixel at a time.

Note to self: sleep on this.

Still not really seeing the commercial usage... dhtml rendering is too slow. It'll come to me, though. :-)
