I do both. :)

If I'm doing a particularly intense exercise, I'll grab something light, like a banana or a protein shake, and then I'll eat afterwards for recovery.

I participated in a 6 week Insanity class at my gym. It started at 5:30 AM and the instructor implored us to eat something before class as she didn't want anyone collapsing. I made sure I had a good dinner and ate a banana before class. I couldn't eat too much but knew I had to get something in my belly. And then I drank some chocolate milk after class.

Eating before exercising is largely a matter of personal preference. Some people (especially morning exercisers) feel they don't have enough energy if they don't eat at least a snack beforehand. Others feel nauseous if they do.

Unless you fall strongly in either camp, just go with whatever suits your schedule best.
