Sell Standards With Numbers [en]

Picked up in the comments at What do I know (a page in the chapter “How to Sell Standards to the Managers”):

I was tired of the other developers calling to ask me if the page looked okay on the Mac. The other developers kept tossing in more tables and spacers to .fix. it for the Mac..So I was driven to tell a manager last week that his home page currently has 800 lines of code, 160 transparent spacers, 21 nested tables, over 36,000 characters and a page size of 65K. (Total copy on the page was less than 1500 characters!)

65K isn.t too awful, but a CSS redesign brought it down to under 12K and it looks almost identical in modern browsers.
