    Too much css in one file?

    I am just curious, but is it possible to have too much css where it can cause slowdowns or bogs in the site?

    I guess the reason I ask, is because I often use dreamweaver to do a quick pick and choose of features I want in my css, and recently, I have started getting errors that basically force me to shut down dreamweaver, and it happens when I am altering or creating new css attributes. I am only using 1 css file, but it spans alot. I am using only 1 because most of my pages share similar attributes that are in that 1.

    Just curious as to what you think of this.

    Thanks
    Bryan

    More likely to be a bug in DW, I think.

    I agree - it could be memory usage. Have you tried redefining your swap area? It depends on the operating system you're using but it could be one of many causes that are being exacerbated by a memory hungry application.

    DW is memory hungry as as you do more with it it retains what it thinks it needs 'just in case' - that's what I've seen and I think the garbage collection routines in this app are not quite as efficient as they could be.
