As long as it produces the correct results in a web browser, who cares?

I've seen C++ compilers generate hundred-kilobyte programs that I could
write in a hundred bytes using assembly language. Given that 100K of RAM
costs two cents, and 100K of disk space costs a hundredth of a cent, I'll
write in C++. And given that a 50KB page can load in 8 seconds via dialup
and a fraction of a second via broadband, I'll save the much longer
programming time and use Dreamweaver.
