Hi Luis,

W3c CSS compliant websites allow for all the above and you are still
able to have really modern, unique and interesting design.

For an example of the possiblities please visit

There's nothing that says rounded corners are mandatory but I prefer
them to straight edges for this site in particular. I think the LAD site
could handle harder corners though.
