How to automatically eliminate template comments in page created from template?

Hi All,


I would like to eliminate Dreameaver-generated comments in published pages.

Pet peeve, maybe, but they are really a waste (of space, bandwidth, etc.)


Does anybody know if there's a way to have them automatically eliminated from the pages that are built from a template?


For instance, this page: Perfetta.html


has comments stemming from the original template.



<h1><!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="Autore+Titolo" -->Daria Bignardi: L'Acustica Perfetta<!-- InstanceEndEditable --></h1>


Has anybody a suggestion about how they can be quicky removed before publication to the server?

Thanks all!

    No, cannot be done.  DWT markup tells the program it's a template.  Frontpage/Expression Web has DWT files too and uses a similar markup for its templates.  Only way to get rid of it is to move to a server-side language like PHP or a CMS solution which uses includes.

    Bandwith savings would be imperceptible from removing those bits of code if it were possible.

    Your real bandwith and page loading savings would come from resizing and optimizing your images.

    Did you realize that your home page image

    is actually downloading a 4000 wide by 2276 high image but you are only displaying it at 400 wide?
