CSS file sizes

Posted 29 January 2009 - 12:56 PM

I'm just wondering will the file size of my css page effect the performance of my site when under pressure.
or
should i split the code thats not in use on every page in to separate documents?

You should try to keep all your CSS in as few files as possible - while the downloaded size may be larger, this is offset by the fact that there's no extra requests being made(which cause more overhead).

Yes, the more you split it up into other files, the more requests and downloading you'll be doing. Even if there's something you might not use very much (even once), including it in a file you already have is a smart idea. That way you can not only easily access it and know where it is, but you don't have to download something else.
