Concerning HTML smudging: there's no  OCT 25 1999

Concerning HTML smudging: there's no excuse for crappy coding, but I'm thinking that code shortcuts could help matters rather than hinder. One of the things people try to do when delivering media over a network is to minimize the amount of media being sent (to minimize overall network traffic) by compressing it and then using the computing power of the client to render or decompress it (examples: Flash, Zip files, GIFs, JPEGs, etc.). In the same way, you could leave the quotes off of your tag attributes and not close your tables, resulting in a page that would download faster but take a little longer for the client machine to render.
