I also like to study cover headlines on magazines...
I would just like to point out that in book titles, the colon has become ubiquitous (at least for non-fiction / biographical books).

Controversial Statement Here: Boring Explanation Here
Play On words Here: Boring Explanation Here
I wonder if people are being "conditioned" to expect these types of titles for "serious" (or educational) web pages as well...
