A document's weight, that is, the time it takes for the page to download, is a good metric for testing a site's design and effectiveness. Public sites and intranets with remote users must achieve a balance between attractive content and tolerable page-loading times. HomeSite can help you find that balance by supplying values for document download times across a range of modem speeds.
Only image files (GIF, JPG, PNG) are tested and included in the Dependencies list
The following graphic shows a sample Document Weight list:
The file's dependencies, such as image and media files, are listed along with file size and download times for a range of modem speeds. Tags in comments are not calculated.
HomeSite uses the Root URL setting in your FTP configuration to determine the relative path to files.
