The Funkiest Ampersand's You Have Ever Seen
Spoon Graphics has an awesome roundup of funky ampersands.
I mentioned in the comments a cool thing to "use the best ampersand available
" is to wrap the ampersands in an unique class and then list your 10 favorite in your font-family declaration. Chances are, most visitors won't have your crazy fonts, but there is decent change that some of them will have at least one of them. And if not, they'll just get the default, no harm done.
Web Design Timeline

If you haven't seen a demo on this "seam carving" technique
for re-sizing images, you gotta check it out. This particular demo let's you use any image you want to. If we could get this built into web browsers, that would be amazing. Can you image utilizing this for a fluid width layout? That like the the "flying cars" future of web design.
Entire Resizeable Webpage
Speaking of resizeable... This is years old but its like my example of resizeable images
