Damn, that is somethink I would like very much to see.

Many people indent HTML with spaces - those who code by hand.
Some of them (size conscious) unindent them for production 
and sometimes partially indent again for fixing something!

And we often use "font" tags everywhere because of browsers 
with bad CSS support. 

I would feel much better about those spaces and font tags 
thinking how little they would weight after gziped.

Ok! I know that all HTML (with all those repetitive tags) 
benefits a lot from compression. But for me (and those HTML 
coders) there is a feel good factor on gzip support.
=;o)

Have fun,
Paulo
