I am not sure that font size is accounted for. Some tools that I use suggest
that size is merely irrelevant, but I doubt it. Bear in mind, however, that
in properly-developed sites, information regarding size should be contained
in stylesheet. Crawlers do not bother with styles, let alone JavaScript.
Thus, in-line styling differs from semantic markup and should be treated

Hi Jim,

I wrote the meta bits over a year ago when I did not know they had become
useless. I leave them as a sort of legacy, but I can assure you that certain
sites pick them for statistics-gathering pusposes. The cost, however, is
increased page size, which slows down fetching (not rendering) a wee bit.
For sites that are not optimised for size, this might be acceptable.

Regarding animated icons, you can easily achieve this with open source
software. The art work is largely handled by scripts that are contained in
the application. See instructions at:


Best wishes,
