Keep it creative!

In my experience, web designers talk far too much about development. We're worrying about how something might look in IE8, swapping rounded corner fallback solutions, and now stressing about fluid grid frameworks. The danger is that technical constraints will stifle our creativity.

How often do you lay an idea to rest because it's just going to be a nightmare to implement in CSS? How soon do you crush that idea? Do you let it develop a while to see if it's the best possible way to communicate your site goals to your user? Or do you just shelve it as soon as you consider how much markup it will require?
