Presidential Homepages Violate Speed and Accessibility Guidelines / CSS: Group Selectors

Optimization Week Issue #2, Nov. 12, 2003

This week we've got a special treat for you. We compare the home pages of the ten presidential candidates for speed and accessibility to see how well they fare with published guidelines. The results may surprise you. In this week's speed tweak we show how to group selectors in your CSS to save space.

This week's review was suggested by one of our readers. If you've got an idea for a speed review we want to hear from you. If you've found a site that you find particularly fast or slow let us know about it and it just might appear in a future issue.
