I am not an experienced web designer, but I have used a handful of WYSIWYG design tools (iWeb, SandVox and most recently, Sparkle.)
I noticed that using some of these tools, if I changed the design considerably, or went in another direction with some structure, the underlining code and sometimes the file-structure wouldn’t re-optimize for the new structure. Meaning, there was a lot of residue or unnecessary nesting of formats in the final result. It slowed the loading of the site down, along with often having artifacts while loading, but finally disappearing once totally loaded. This occurred to some extent on every WYSIWYG website design tool. (You can see it happen on hybrid tools when looking at the underlining code.)
Okay, here’s my question. How does Sparkle deal with this HouseKeeping and re-optimization of the code? Or if I am changing the structure considerably, do people recommend that I start the site from scratch, like I have needed to do with other applications?
Thanks! So far I’ve really enjoyed using Sparkle.
