Not up to speed with most of you but I would appreciate some help! The actual site is to be a chronology which includes large text files and images. I don’t want a timeline so to speak.
How would I go about making a website that shows large text files.. I have thought of XML and web storage. Can anybody give me some advice on how to achieve a page thats not going to take forever to load.
To make it more simpler – 1 page bringing in (or whatever is the quickest way) 1 text file with images (size 597kb)
I can follow suit with other pages if I can work out the best way to do it.
I would like to make this chronology as future proof as I can (for historians)
Converting the files to html still gives me a large file size, but is that the only way to do it?
I want to build a Chronology website that should hopeful be future proof if possible.
I have quite large text files, so just formatting the text into a page renders it very heavy (over 1mb)
What I want to know is the best way to keep this file size down for quick loading. Would it be best to xml the text files or what would be the best way?
