Move any inline styles into an include file and only use classes in the html. This speeds up the website (Google now takes that into account) and makes the html cleaner to parse/edit.

You can also compress css files to get that extra speed.

Use header tags (h1,h2), strong/bold tags, list tags over styles as search engines and accessibility features use those tags to determine significance.

I've just written an online CSS Compressor Tool (http://seo-website-designer.com/CSS-Compressor/) for those interested in sqeezing out those extra bits of speed.

There are plenty. You can use CSS to move your content above your navigation for the bot to eat (this isn't as effective as it was a few years ago). But the most popular is to decrease the size of the H1 tag so it can actually be used on a web page without the text "exploding" for the viewer because of its size.

Wow, that's a very nice tool. Thanks a lot!

I just checked with one of my CSS feeds, and it compressed it almost 21%.
