#334 Compass & CSS Sprites – RailsCasts.
RailsCasts has a fantastic look at how much Compass can help you with spriting. Spriting is tedious but accomplishing the same goal with Compass makes it laughably easy. There is an implementation syntax you’ll need to get used to, but as I use Compass more it gets so much right that it’s absolutely worth evaluating to see if it’s something you like too. Personally, I find myself using more and more of Compass on every project as I explore it, such great stuff.
