    Kinda new to iweb and looking to see if there is a way to make iweb folders more condensed. My sites load pretty quickly but because they seem graphic rich, it's slow to scroll and is fine in safari but ie is the problem. Any specific solutions would be awesome.

    There are utilities to compress HTML, but I cannot gaurantee the code will load back into iWeb for editing later on.

    If not that one, type in "compress HTML" in Google and look around. I have to say I am behind a firewall at work, those sites are restricted so I cannot suggest a "best" choice. Other responders might chime in, of course.

    What I would do is concentrate on optimizing images and removing comments from CSS and Source that don't need to be there. That helps alot, and simple to do. in iWeb you'd export the site, then edit by hand, then upload.

    Another approach is to enable GZIP compression on your server if you host the site on your own server with Apache. There is no way I am aware of to do it via code via iWeb, much like PHP has GZIP capability. So this is a question for your private webhost. For the record, GZIP is not all its cracked up to be as there are different levels to choose from and traditionally its controlled by the developer in their code, not the server.
