      Reduce OFBiz's HTML output so that pages load faster on dial-up lines.

      Three things can be done to achieve that goal:

      1. Reduce HTML code through better use of styles (currently in progress).

      2. Eliminate the language selection code that is sent out with every page request. Intead of having a selection box in the header, just display the currently selected language and provide a link to change it. Clicking on the link could produce a language selection popup window - similar to the current lookup windows.

      3. Freemarker has the <#compress></#compress> directives which eliminate unnecessary HTML white space. A recent test showed the directives can yield a 33% reduction in markup. Problem is, that only works if the directive is placed in every FTL file. There needs to be a way to make that a global setting in Freemarker, so that ALL markup is reduced - without any additional FTL coding. I looked around the Freemarker website for a way to do that, but couldn't find anything.
