Another factor that will affect the appearance of load time is the HTML construction of the page. Depending on the speed of your machine at home vs. your machine at work and the browser you're using, you can see vastly huge differences in load time, even on the same connection.

As point of reference, the Monastery Gates uses 14 tables, some of them nested, and at least 6 tables on most other pages.

The more tables you have on a page (especially nested ones), the more work it takes your browser and therefore your PC to render the page. Having to use tables like isn't anyone's fault here, or even at EveryDevel. It's needed to make sure that every user coming to PerlMonks can browse the site, even if they're using Netscape 3.

Maybe once everyone's browsing with fully CSS compliant browsers (and who knows how long that will take, if it will ever occur) we can move beyond using tables to something more DHTML-ish.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
