Because I am not yet ready to pay to use and edit the css of my chosen theme, I am making do with HTML coding to configure texts and paragraphs. I am no expert on techy stuff, so I wondered whether using code in the HTML editor will slow down the rate at which a page loads? I have heard it does a little but more so if you have graphics. I'm having minium graphics on mine but I'm still using code such as the Div and Span for each paragraph, for example. Some of my articles will be lengthy as well, about 4 or 5 scrolls down.
My main question is: will using code slow down the pages? And how much?
The blog I need help with is mbukee.wordpress.com.
