What you did not show from the test for idn.org was
that the image analysis shows two images which could be jacked up:
Name Type Size Time Width Height Colors
(bytes) (sec) (pixels) (pixels)
idn2jpeg.JPG JPEG 9630 5.35 600 72 24 bits
bookb.gif GIF87a 3960 2.20 92 84 256
The "size" field provides information on the bandwidth used
by images in the Web page. Black text means the size of the image is
ok and will load
in a reasonably quick time over a 14.4kbps modem. Dark red text
means that the image
is getting a bit big, but may be worth the wait, depending on the
picture. Red text is for
images that will be too big to wait for in many cases. Unless there
is compelling reason
to wait for it to load, most folks will go elsewhere. If this image
is absolutely necessary,
consider putting in a low resolution version using the "LOWSRC=" tag.
My advice is to change the jpeg to a gif of less than 56 colours, and ditto
for the other gif (in fact change all your jpegs to gifs...you're not doing
a photographic exhibition:-)).
Coupled with the advice provided by Christopher Geerdts yesterday, this
page's download time could probably be markedly improved.
