after reading all about css on this forum, i decided to give it a try. i redesigned my site without tables and cut the amount of code for my page in half. the problem is, according to frontpage (i know, consider the source), the css version of the same page is about 4 times as slow to load. this doesn't seem to make much sense to me, so i thought i would look for some feedback.
here is the same page written entirely in css (except of course the flash graphic) without tables:
the new site isn't completely set up, so don't bother following links or anything, just check it out real quick please.
since i have a t1 internet connection and a pretty quick computer, they both load pretty fast, so it is very hard to compare. i was wondering if people with different setups could give me load times and/or advice regarding the load time difference.
also, some opinions on which site is more appealing in general would help.
thanks much for your input and help with this.
