Hell, even PX metric fonts are making a resurgence with the total steaming piles of failure that make up the current crop of forum skins (vbull 4, myBB, phpBB - though phpBB never left them).
Just look at all the nimrods slapping up "best viewed in" garbage and the "don't use IE" games of the people jumping the gun on specifications not even out of draft.
Which goes with something I always tell aspiring designers and developers - and for the former it's often a bitter pill to swallow.
The firefox noscript plugin and opera's in-built per site enable/disable of scripting being VERY popular for a reason.
Especially since it looks like 90% of it doesn't work on anything newer than IE6.
