Increase speed by removing unnecessary code

Yola could increase speed by removing all the unnecessary code they put into our websites. I'm talking about all the comments, white space, new lines, tabs, long class and id names... For example, the code starts with:

<!--
Yola template
-->

That's unnecessary. Than there are many blank lines of code, lots of tabs and white space. Not to mention the long names you give to stuff like "sys_background" which could be shortened to one letter only.

All that useless code slows down Yola. It would be great if you could remove it.

Do you realise how quick a browser reads a line of text?

lol, actually. It depends on how much unnecessary code there is. Do you know that the more information that is on a page the longer it takes to fully load. I know that my pages with lots of text and images takes on average 15 to 20 seconds to finish loading and those with a little bit takes less than a second. I believe what AS99999 is saying could possibly be true! But the question is. Is it really unnecessary? That's up to Yola to decide.

Thank you. I don't how blank lines can be necessary, let's hear what they say...
