That depends. At optimum speeds, that will take 8 seconds to load on
dialup. What do think?

otoh, bear in mind that after the first visit to that page, most of that
50kb will presumably be in the cache, making repeat visits much faster.

Not necessarily. I only have a 10MB cache enabled, and it gets emptied
every time I close my browser. Granted, most people don't impose these
limits.

Not necessarily either. I think. Isn't it true that if the script is in the htm then the script is parsed every time the page is loaded? My understanding is that I have to put the script in a js file for the script to be cached???
