We've found it depends on the application. Most of the developers I'm 
working with now are indentation freaks who prepend each line with an 
average of 40 spaces. Stripping the trailing and leading space on each 
line is generally the safest way to do it, as the carriage return is 
whitespace anyway, works pretty well.

Bandwidth costs money - a 6% saving for virtually no effort can be 
significant on high traffic sites.
