Fw: [thelist] size of a web site (page)

Netscape 6.x and 7.x also will tell you the total time it took to actuall
load the page (based on your current connection speed)... that's handy as
well.  It does this by default in the window status area.

The problem with the DW or HS thing is that it doesn't account for things
like external .js, .css files, or if you use server-side includes that are
generated at runtime.  And the weights and times it generates are based on
unrealistic best case scenarios (no one on a dial-up will EVER get the full
56k throughput for example).
