DIVelement, but using it where there is no semantic meaning required.
I think my favorite technique listed on the site right now is Punchout. It allows you to add and animate images behind type using the HTML
CANVAS element. Before the
CANVAS element, in order to use text as a mask, you had to create an image. But with this technique, you can place an image on your page, write the text, and have the image only show through the text. Then if you make a typo or want to change the text, you just change it in the HTML, no messing with the image again.
