The recommended configuration should not include the "Compress everything except images" section

           Summary: The recommended configuration should not include the
                    "Compress everything except images" section
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: HEAD
          Platform: All
               URL: http://httpd.apache.org/docs-
                    2.0/mod/mod_deflate.html#recommended
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Documentation
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: A.Schild@neatech.ch


In the documentation for mod_deflate we have two
recommended configurations.

One is to "Compress only a few types" 
(text/html text/plain text/xml)
This one works fine in normal environments.

The second recommended configuration is
"Compress everything except images"

This second configuration gives problems when
PDF files are sent compressed to both IE and Mozilla.

http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=224296

I have no Idea what happens when other content
is sent compressed to those browsers when 
it's handled by a plugin. (Flash etc.)

I think we should remove the second
recommended configuration from the recommended section
and put it in a "possible other configuration" section
and at the same time change the non-gzip line to
include pdf as non-compressable.

Like:

 # Don't compress images and pdf files
SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \
\.(?:gif|jpe?g|png|pdf)$ no-gzip dont-vary
