I'm a web developer and programmer from the UK. I'll fill this out more when I can be bothered; really I'm just trying to get the autobiography badge.

In PHP it's barely "extra code", you just call the strip_tags function.

@renuka Why don't you just try it and see? What exactly are you expecting from this question?

comment Does lazy loading work on externally hosted images?
@questionoverflow is that a joke I'm not getting? Displaying images from any source affects the performance of the page.

comment How to deal with short-urls that get indexed too in Google?
@Rana why recommend nofollow for linking to the shortened URL? That will prevent PageRank flowing to the target page...

comment Does a jQuery “rel=nofollow” even work?
I don't have a source or hard evidence for this, but from the way Google talks about JS-parsing it sounds like they don't use it all the time. Since there is some processing overhead, I'd expect they keep it for larger sites or pages that are not brand new.

In that post you linked, do you know what he means by "this is a limitation of the CSSOM"?

comment How to add favicon to robots.txt
@user ok maybe you're right about DDG. I'm constantly hearing about it, but never anything about Ask, so it certainly seems more popular.

comment How to align images left or right using semantically named classes?
@ynnc Problem is, there is no way around the grid issue. You can have main/sidebar classes sometimes, but most of the time there is no semantic class you can use, unless you want to use a unique class on every single block of content.

comment How to add favicon to robots.txt
@user well technically you could have favicon.png and favicon.pngx if such a file extension existed, so you would need the $ in that case. As noted in my answer below, I would steer clear of using non-standard extensions unless there is no other way to achieve the effect.

comment How to add favicon to robots.txt
OK, but others such as Duck Duck Go don't appear to (they are at least as popular as Ask). Regardless, the * wildcard isn't necessary in this situation anyway.

comment Is lazy loading a clever way of keeping internal links to a minimum?
Good answer apart from the last line. Adding nofollow to internal links will only harm your site, not improve anything. See youtube.com/watch?v=bVOOB_Q0MZY

Since when has $ been allowed in robots.txt? Do you have a source for that?
