Blizz Splash Screen

Let me make this a little more clear. If you look at the source code of the splash page you get the following:

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<meta http-equiv="imagetoolbar" content="false" />
<link media="screen, projection" href="http://us.media.blizzard.com/232309/master.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />
<link href="http://us.media.blizzard.com/232309/_images/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" rel="shortcut icon" />
<title>Blizzard Entertainment</title>
</head>

<body>
<div class="clickthru">
<div class="link">
<a href="index.xml">Continue to World of Warcraft.com</a>
</div>
</div>
<div class="icefield" onclick="window.location.href='index.xml'">
<a href="http://www.blizzard.com/"><!----></a>
</div>
<div class="footer">
<a onclick="window.open(this.href);return false" href="http://www.blizzard.com/us/legalfaq.html">&copy;2008 Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. All rights reserved.</a>

</div>
</body>
</html>

The 5th line down you see: <link media="screen, projection" href="http://us.media.blizzard.com/232309/master.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />

If you follow that link it will lead you to the css code and the commented image.

One of the items commented out of the code was this (/*.tundra {background:url(_images/04.jpg) no-repeat 0 0} */ )

You can view this image by going to http://us.media.blizzard.com/232309/_images/04.jpg

Any ideas?

Re: Blizz Splash Screen

It looks like that is the master css file. That comment could be a decade old. The image could be in an archive used for a project that was canceled. It could even be left over form a different company altogether. Did blizz always do their web design themselves? Or was it contracted out for a while?
