An Impressive SharePoint Data View Web Part

Hi,

I recently attended a SharePoint User Interface/User Experience (UI/UX) class.  One of the topics was the flexibility of data view web parts (WVWP).  I’m realizing that many of the SharePoint sites that I have seen out in the wild are using WVWPs to achieve the look that I’m interested in for our intranet site.  As an example, see www.recovery.gov and the “What’s New” and “Suggested Links” areas.  The look of these were done by using DVWPs (at least that’s what I’m lead to believe).

So I started poking around a little and ran across this posting of some DWVPs that were actually done in SharePoint Services 3!  It’s pretty neat:

Here’s a picture of a waterfall:
