Helicon Jet does not remove exsessive space characters
in html, but actually gzip compression provided by Jet
is much more effective for the server
performance.

The reason I ask is because I am actually in the process of considering a compression software for IIS. I have a few on my list, and there is one that sticks out of them all that not only GZIPs the output, but also removes all whitespaces. I noticed that the resulting size is much smaller than just doing ordinary gzip.

For instance, using this third party tool, I shrunk a page to from 16kb to 2.4kb with GZIP alone. If I enabled whitespace supression, I shrunk it to around 1.6kb.

It might be something to take into consideration. :)

Thanks a lot for the info. We'll consider implementing this functionality.
