Reducing size of html ezines?Views: 1073

Sharif Khan
I'm curious if any of you know of any creative ways of reducing the delivery size of html ezines without obviously reducing the content?

I can't figure out how some html formatted ezines that actually have more text than my newsletter (which does not contain any images/graphics) still end up with less KB. (It's my understanding that it would be ideal to keep ezines under 40KB).

Any advice from the group?

Hi Sharif,

Good question! The primary culprits of oversized ezines are:
1) embedding or attaching images, rather than linking to them where they are hosted on a web server somewhere.
2) extranneous html code. it's a good idea to send very clean html code in your ezines. this will both reduce your risk of landing in junk filters as well as decreasing the file size of your ezine. go through your code and get rid of any unnecessary java scripts, dhtml code, and other superfulous coding.

Hope this helps,

You could shorten the articles and provide summaries instead. Or shorten the ezine itself.

To see if the code is the problem, do a search for CSE Light (a free program) or w3 Validator and put one of your issues through their code checker.
