Chapter 7. CSS Optimization > Minimize HTTP Requests

Minimize HTTP Requests

Because style sheets must be in the head of (X)HTML documents, multiple CSS files can slow down the display of your visible content, especially on high-traffic pages.

For all pages, try to consolidate multiple external CSS files into fewer files if possible. One CSS file is ideal.
