Size matters

Here's an interesting tool I found out about on Beth Mazur's IDblog. It downloads whatever page you tell it to, then compares the size of the file to how much of that file is actually text that people will read. I thought I was doing pretty well at 56.70% of my markup actually being read (that number will no doubt change as I post this; it was 58.04% earlier today). But I had to try the king of markup, Mark Pilgrim and his diveintomark.org (see below) to see how well I stacked up. Looks like I still have a way to go. (Note that using frames gets you a really abysmal score....)

Then the tool is broken.

My mostly image-free page gets a rating of 50.1%. Sheesh. Tough crowd.

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio
