Reducing html file size by constructing html tables with ECMA Script on browser.

Disclosed is a method to reduce size of html with client side row extraction with ECMA Script.

Html is the most popular format in the Internet. It is easy to write. But  it takes a lot of bytes to describe complex pages. This is a serious  problem in narrow band area.  We will show you the way to reduce size of  complex html.

I discuss on a simple example of html pages describing stock markets.

This example looks not so complex.

Following are source html of IBM's row. There are many codes to describe only one row.   <TR align=right>

You can see a lot of repetition on the example. Comparing with other rows,  repeated words are also repeated  and  number, names, price information's are different. They are necessary and  enough to write these lines. If there is a a way to create...
