It certainly won't do as well in the rankings as a site with REAL text, and good keywords and a description in the
META tags. Some high-graphics sites rank very highly - if what they are offering is graphics. If you are trying to
sell tires or potato chips, rethink your design.

No - for one they frown on hidden text, and for two, it's only hidden
if the visitor is accepting your color schemes. I use a browser that
uses MY color schemes, and I see all those hidden things.
