It's the name of a technique when you replace text with images to make your website look prettier, while keeping the markup relevant.

If you should use it, or need to use it, depends on what you're trying to do of course (*cough* you didn't tell ;) )

Search engine spyders or robots cannot read the text in images, which is a serious disadvantage without careful design. Quite often a good effect can be achieved by putting regular HTML text over a CSS background instead of using text in an image.
