[thelist] Very nice trick to save bandwidth.

Interesting point, and very good example.

Possible Downsides:

* Does the JS rendering add any time to the perceived loading time? Don't
have a slow enough connection to really test that out.
* Of course, this requires JavaScript to run.

You could save even more by:

* Compressing your HTML
* Moving your Javascript to an external file.
* Replacing <font> stuff with stylesheets (an external one, of course)!

I got it down to about 21k with that. :-)
