Message:Things like gif files are already compressed and gzipping them actually make them bigger. Same I guess for zip files and other already compressed types. Another thing to look out for is activex controls that can't deal with compressed content. There is a version of adobe acrobat reader that dies of the pdf is compressed. Again, it depends on your environment, client software and audience.
