My understanding is that if you wanted to ignore clients that couldn't
handle compression, you could just have the compressed file available.
That would yield the same result as using CHTML. Of course you might be
able to handle more users that way since both IE 4.0 and Navigator 4.5
handle gzip compression. As of yet there don't seem to be very many
CHTML enabled clients out there.
