HTTP Compression (First Phase) Implemented in Mozilla!

Thursday September 17th, 1998 has just gone up with news that Mozilla now has a limited form of HTTP compression! In this first phase of the implementation, the browser sends an "Accept-encoding: gzip" header to the server. If the correct Apache server module is installed, and the access.conf file in the requested document's directory has a line "CompressContent: yes", the server will look for any gzipped versions of the requested file in that directory. Whew!

But that's just the first step. Click here to read about what's to come!

Hmm. Could anyone clear up what's going on with the multiple postings with one containing backslashed characters?

Are people posting twice, and doing this by hand, or no?

If not, I'll look into it and see if I can figure out what's going on.
