HTML Tips and Tricks
Today, most people in the web world have high speed internet. But a lot of people are still on dial up and a 56k modem:(

Your heavy flash site with music that's so loud and videos that are 2 hours long are very slow for these people. There are some ways to stop this... and this is what I cover in this tutorial.

The first thing you might want to try is to do it manually. The things to check are the following:

-Tabs, enters, and spaces. Your code is dirty with those. In an HTML editor change this:
 
<html>
<head>
            <title>This page is so heavy! Poor 56k modem!</title>

</head>

<body>

<p>  this is too long:(</p>

</body>
</html>


to...

 
<html>
<head>
<title>This page is so heavy! Poor 56k modem!</title>
</head>
<body>
<p>  this is too long:(</p>
</body>
</html>


Duplicated font tags, frontpage is the king in this world;) Basically some tags are not needed in the following code:
<font size"12"> <font color"red">Bla Bla text</font></font> 


These two different elements can be put into one.
<font size"12" color"red">Bla Bla text</font> 


Today we mostly do not use the font tag anymore... we use CSS stylecheets (There are some pretty good tutorials on that subject on Pixel2Lilfe)

Some editors will add some comments you don't need such as

<!--This page was generated with Dreamweaver-->

Delete these because they just take up some  room on your server... and some of that precious 56k modem user's time;)

Some very useful programs actually optimise your code for your! HTML Shrinker is one you can try out!
