one of them is that my site comes up very s l o w l y .
First, validate your HTML and also the css.
But the info about browser behaviour and language is really, really interesting. Aside from the issue of characters that all users may not have, there is the whole issue of switching the language direction as well. Did you do any tests to see whether browser behaviour changes depending on what language is set for the document?
<bdo dir="rtl">Here is some Hebrew text!</bdo>
is there a different way to do what I did ?Yes there should be. Usually heavily nested divs indicate the using divs rather than coding semantically, and also trying to take too much control over the styling rather than taking advantage of the elements natural flow. Sometimes divs and nested divs are necessary, especially when coding for older browsers, but given Lucy found very heavily nested divs (apologies Lucy I missed your earlier statement you'd validated), plus a table being used for non-tabular data, I would expect the coding on your site could be refined.
I ran pagespeed, and the board was green.If you mean you got all green "ticks" (check-marks) that's a great result! But sorry, Angel, I wasn't clear in my initial post. Look at the "Net" tab for the times components are taking to download.
alt131 - Does this mean you are going to share you paycheck with me this week, lolWahoo leaping at that offer! Which means you are now officially "it" for the next time Lucy wants to slap someone with a wet haddock ;)
