Subject GZip encoding
Date Fri, 21 May 2004 15:41:53 GMT
We're having issues where content from our service is being sent GZip 
encoded to the HttpClient, But with an error that its gzip transfer 
encoding header isn't set properly by the server (thank our server 
developer). Most browsers (and clients in perl etc) seem to catch this 
error early and fall into GZip decoding. I would like to catch this 
condition and have the client still gzip decode the stream. First, does 
HttpClient support gzip decoding, and Second, is there a way I can force 
to gzip decode if the header is broken?
