Re: Adding data table plugin to improve tables

This may be related to something I was just hashing over for page speed optimization. Google's Page Speed Insights suggests changing the parsing and execution of scripts and stylesheets and putting them only just before they are needed. Placing script tags and stylesheet tags in the header of a page actually stops page rendering until they are downloaded and parsed. See this info page from Google.

I'm experimenting with making all the javascripts 'defered' to start with. Some of this can be done in the theme, and some of it has to happen in the core - the $icms_module_header adds scripts and stylesheets like linkexternal.js and all the jQuery script files.

Anybody know of any reason NOT to defer their execution until the end of the page rendering?
