11.1 Page Weight

Bobby has now fixed their validator to recognize the statement xml:lang="en". Running your page through the Bobby validator can catch things that other validators won't, and is an excellent tool. Unfortunately, their validator no longer has the download time with delays feature.

Using a browser like Mozilla 1.1 with a 56 K modem to test pages will give you the download time for the page.

Web pages need to be readable with or without the CSS, on any computer, with any connection, with a reasonable download time.

A guideline is under 20 seconds at 28.8 bps with delays-- many commercial sites cannot do this, but efforts should be made to minimize page weight, or you lose customers.
