Chapter Seven. Tighter, Firmer Pages Guaranteed: Structure and Meta-Structure in Strict and Hybrid Markup

Whatever you do, don't skip this chapter. Reading it will improve your skills, trim unwanted fat from your web pages, and sharpen your understanding of the difference between markup and design. The ideas in this chapter are easy to follow but can make a profound difference in the performance of your sites and the facility with which you design, produce, and update them.

In this chapter, we'll show how to write logical, compact markup that can lower your bandwidth by 50% or more, restoring pep and vigor to your site's loading times while reducing server aches and stress. We'll achieve these savings by banishing presentational elements from our XHTML and learning to avoid many common practices that are frankly no good at all.
