In a bid to satisfy Web site developers who think FrontPage adds too much unnecessary code to Web pages, FrontPage 2003 features an HTML cleanup feature that lets you strip out some redundant HTML. It is doing a poor job at that but it is better then nothing. Among other things you can delete HTML comments with just one click. Usually you can create your own better "demoronizer" in Perl in a several hours.
13.5. Code Cleanup: Optimizing HTML
A lot of Web purists will give you an earful on how FrontPage produces sloppy, overloaded HTML code. While older versions of the program were definitely guilty of this crime, the accusation has lost some of its bite with FrontPage 2003. The code the program now produces is relatively clean and efficient.
However, FrontPage still gives you an opportunity to clear out HTML elements that you don't want around. A lot of these elements happen to be FrontPage-specific HTML that rankles the aforementioned purists.
This section helps you decide whether or not you'll want to optimize, and what all your options are.
The main reason you'd optimize is to trim the size of your pages so they download faster. Also, if you are using FrontPage to create simple HTML pages and don't want to include any of the program's FrontPage-specific coding, you should optimize.
Most Optimize options will render many of your pages uneditable. This means that you'll never be able to copy them back to your development site. Also, letting FrontPage strip elements out of your HTML could result in your pages displaying differently than you expect.
All HTML comments. Activates all the "comment" options indented beneath it. You need to turn this on to choose further options.
Author-time Web Component comments. Deletes comments that go along with page elements like included content.
Browse-time Web Component comments. Clears comments out of all browse-time Web components, like site search boxes and hit counters. If you're publishing with FrontPage or SharePoint services, FrontPage won't let you turn off this option.
Theme and Shared Border comments. Removes all comments for themes and shared borders. If you're publishing with FrontPage or SharePoint services, FrontPage grays out this option.
Dynamic Web Template comments. Removes comments from Dynamic Web Templates and their linked HTML pages. Turning on this option turns the template into a regular HTML page and breaks the connection between the template and its associated pages.
Layout Tables and Cell Formatting comments. Gets rid of all comments FrontPage uses to handle layout tables.
Script comments. Clears out all comments from scripts.
All other HTML comments. Eliminates any comments in your code (that is all < !- - and - - > tags and their contents.) Developers use comments like this to speak with each other. However, as you read in Chapter 7 (Section 7.3.2), embedded styles live within comment tags, so your page could lose these as well.
HTML leading whitespaces. Removes any empty spaces that begin a line of HTML. This option is the safest and least intrusive cleanup option.
HTML all whitespace. Gets rid of all multiple empty spaces in your site's code. This option turns returns and multiple spaces into one space. This can cause problems in some older browsers that can't handle very long lines of code.
FrontPage Tracing Image and Interactive Button attributes. Eliminates attributes from tracing images and FrontPage interactive buttons, rendering them uneditable.
Generator and ProgID tags. FrontPage plunks some <meta> tags down in the head section of every page. This option deletes them all. If you dislike these tags, you can stop FrontPage from adding them in the first place.
If you click "Set as Default," on the lower-left corner of the Optimize HTML tab, FrontPage saves your optimization settings for this site.
