Remove dreamweaver guff with external JS

 1:56 pm on Jul 5, 2002 (gmt 0)

Having just done an experiment to remove all the guff that dreamweaver produces for rollovers and preloaded images it appears to work. However

What I would like to know is, is is safe to remove as much JS as possible. Am I looking for trouble?

Any thoughts/experience

Hi ukgimp,

Yes it is a good thing to trim down DW JS. Using external script calls is the way to go.
This will reduce HTML file size and improve content to junk ratio.

A good thread [webmasterworld.com] was started by tedster about it. I hope you can find the answers in it.

Dreamweaver's code for Javascript can be pretty heavy.

I would reccomend finding or cteating your own javascripts that you commonly need and put them in external javascript files.

I only need a few and since all of them together are quite small in file size it doesnt matter if I dont use them all.
