It shouldn't affect page size directly. Load time will take a minor hit because the parser will create a server-side object to represent the element rather than simply copyingt the markup to the output stream.

However, the hit will be negligible so shouldn't prevent you converting to a server-side element if you need to access it dynamicaly.

I've seen very interesting articles on load time, most of which suggest that the performance of a backend-system is in most case negligible to what's happening during transmission and rendering of a page. So, runat="server" should not have a noticeable impact on performance at all. Removing the attribute will actually make your .net application fail (or it should, since this attribute indicates that the html-tag needs some attention from your backing bean, or whatever it's called on .Net :))

Anyways, client-side it will have 0 impact, it gets ignored.
