an earlier post on bloated html mentioned consumer software but moved
swiftly onto other things

we teach basic web design using front page + home page to people who can
rarely use anything other than a word processor (big demand from the
average clip art user)

we try to insist they learn basic html, so I'd be up for teaching them
about some of the niceties of fast downloads, with a view to avoiding the
prospective bandwidth drought (especially if they're left to Publisher,
which creates A4 sized gifs)

They're not going to be building big and clever sites, but I think we do
use tables rather a lot to control positioning

? any comments about how to help them keep files as small as possible?

? is there a good 50/100 quid WYSIWYG package that doesn't add tons of code?

? ditto a graphics package?

? any sites we can refer to to teach better bandwidth habits?

? a good beginners list where this wouldn't be on the fringes of 'off-topic'?
