this is a tiny html page.
i'm trying to make a page that's as small as possible
while still looking pretty nice.
so i got rid of a header and used the title.
and i styled the title so it looks like a header.
another rule is, it can't show any errors in developer tools.
so i have to include a
just tested it – chrome doesn't have a problem with no
charset, but firefox does.
<meta charset=utf-8> tag,
i'm pretty sure.
meta tag saves 20 bytes,
so screw it.
let's take it out
(can you tell i am thinking this through as i type it?).
i also have to display everything as block so it'll just look like this. but i think that's okay.
as of right now, this page uses
151 142 137 116 140
36(link) + 84(sheet,minimized) = 120
minus the content.
i think that's pretty good.
- as you can see, the size had been getting smaller and smaller
until the second to last one, where it went up to 140.
i did that for readability: since everything is
it's hard to tell where paragraphs start.
so i added a pilcrow (¶) to the start of each paragraph.
- i also moved the style to a separate sheet and linked it here,
which apparently saves space
another great property i just noticed:
the style no longer lines up with itself.
it kind of sucks, but i'm trying to strike a balance
between good and not as good.
<style> tag at the top of the page
is all aligned with itself, which is also great.
not that you can see it, of course.
i thought about displaying it,
but that messes up the great alignment thing, and
that's the whole reason why it's great.
you can always view-source, if that's your deal.
another thing you can do is make the size whatever you'd like. it'll look good no matter what! [return]
