Not if google can help it! well the fact of the matter is size counts 
with search engines a 10kb page with 100 words of contents rarely gets 
good ranking. I know because we used to have a web designer who used to 
swear by these wysiwyg tools. he didn't last long :-)  and the sites he 
did never got any good positions compared to the success with some of 
our other sites.
