Asp – How to minimize the weight of the ASP.NET pages

asp.netoptimizationseo

I rely heavily on nested Master Pages in my web portal, this causes ASP.NET to generate huge ID tags for controls it creates, for example:
"ctl00_ctl00_MainBody_ctl00_lblDescription"

for a lblDescription Label i've created.

Is there any way to reduce this clutter?

Any other techniques(sorry for being general) to reduce page weight other than removing the viewstate?
