This question may have an obvious answer, however i shall ask anyway.
Does cleaning up the HTML make your site more efficient in terms of search engines?
We have a few sites that have a lot of <font colour="" face="" etc etc etc>words in here</font> within the actual body text.
I am quickly realising how effective CSS can be in general.
I am going to edit the sites to use CSS, but before i do i would like to know if indeed ditching the long font tags for a link to one CSS sheet would be effective......and if possible, how effective?
That size reduction helps with search engines as well as your bandwidth, it gives them more real content and not formattiing guff.
Having one CSS set of styles is a great thing to do. Imagine the benefit of changing one instance of a colour or font tag and all your pages are updated in one quick swoop. Fantastic. Once you start using them you will wonder why you did it any other way.
