    Egad. That's about 15 Megabytes of images on the one page.

    Obviously, the webmaster needs to learn how to resize images. ;-)

    Good lordy! Every single image is resized by HTML only, which means
    that the full sized images are loaded on the front page. I counted
    close to 15 MB while it was loading.

    I see someone need to learn how to resize images in an image editor,
    and not just by HTML.

    Then again, I've seen some bozo load a 3 MB GIF animation of New York
    in their website (can't remember which one, but I did leave the GIF
    animation URL in the "Transfers" tab of Opera, just to re-download when
    I felt like stealing some more bandwidth transfer from the nuthead;
    some people need to learn the hard way).

    I see that the DanielReillyGlass.com domain name is hosted at Yahoo!.
    With a page like that, his allocated transfer amount is bound to run
    out pretty early in the month.

    How do you know that?

    I know how to do it with domains registered in my country (.com.ar),
    but not for .com

    A basic WHOIS on the domain name shows the following:
    Name Server: YNS2.YAHOO.COM
    Name Server: YNS1.YAHOO.COM

    And a DNS lookup on the website address reveals:
    danielreillyglass.com has address 68.142.234.135
    Reverse DNS for 68.142.234.135 => premium6.geo.vip.re2.yahoo.com.

    Why is so much of the HTML commented out. There are complex table tags
    which are just commented out - it doesn't make any sense to me... :/

    Those are "conditional comments" - a non-standard Microsoft invention that
    means their contents will show in certain programs. <[if IE] is quite
    common for giving IE hacks in a seperate CSS script.

    I'm more alarmed by all this:

    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;

    What does FP put need all these spaces for?

    It doesn't, well not in the hands of someone competent it doesn't.
