20.2. HTML Authoring

Some HTML authors might think that the speed that their pages download is out of their control. That's not true at all: HTML authors are the ones who control what data, and how much of it, is actually sent.

20.2.1. Keep the Content Small

Each one will hurt performance and portability, so keep it simple when you can. Most users are happy to load very simple pages as long as they can get them right this instant.
