-Use server-side resolvation of Web addresses. Your HTML file is no smaller
than 114KB and if/once you have many of small pixel-slices, that size can
grow enormously.

-How exactly do you want to use CSS? It is one large image with slicing
using a map, which is I recall is a deprecated technique for creating

-You could use CSS for the placements, which makes the page accessible, but
the stylesheet would get enormous, as would the page.

A 'Million Dollar Webpage' does not scale well unless the slices are
sufficiently large and thus there are few of them.
Innovate, don't imitate. See
