I’ve edited the stylesheet to acheive two things:
- To validate without any errors or warnings (which it does, see W3C’s CSS Validator)
- To be smaller – I don’t use all of the attributes from the original MT stylesheet, so the unused ones can be removed. Doing so means that the sheet is around 400 bytes smaller. It may not sound much, but this file gets accessed 1000 times each day. Over a month, I can save 17MB of data transfer. Now that’s more like it
I also restructured it so that it looked easier to read and removed excessive spaces, tabs and semi-colons, again to cut the bloat.
Of course, one surefire way to lower my bandwidth usage would be to stop writing anything. But that would get boring.
If it interests you, I’ve used 872MB this month so far, so I’m on target for about 1.1GB – well within my 2GB limit. Phew.
