Javascript & CSS Minification

Is that a real word?

Well anyway, I’m just finishing off a fairly jQuery heavy site I’m building for my girlfriend as an online portfolio site and figured I’d minify the css and jQuery to reduce loading times (as all of my javascript includes combined come to around 100k)- found a really good java app writen by Yahoo(!) called the YUI Compressor – I combined all my javascript into one combined.js file then minified it nocking 30k off the file size.  Did the same with css only making a saving of 2-3 k, but every little helps!  Very easy to use, but it means you do have to install the java runtime :(
