Hi Luis,

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

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.
