Release Notes

Public websites should be light-weight, HTML compliant and standards-based to ensure maximum browser and device support. Achieving this using SharePoint is not possible without some serious tweaking.

SharePoint adds a tonne (3.5mb and 480 inline rows of HTML) of JavaScript files, inline code, custom HTML tags and more into the pages. This is used to create the collaborative features and the editorial components, such as support for inline editing, webparts and ribbon menus. But when publishing public websites to anonymous visitors, we are not interested in including this stuff.

I have used many techniques in the past to accomplish this, for example control delegates and control adapters. I have written “catch all” HTML filter modules that recognizes and removes any SharePoint publishing scripts. The problem with all of these techniques is that they are heavy and difficult to maintain. This time, I chose a light-weight version.
