I just briefly scanned the redbook and haven't tested DEFLATE myself, but it appeared to me that the compression worked with both static and dynamic content, but seemed to be filtered according to the content-type header in the response. Maybe the content-type of your net.data output didn't match the filter criteria. Or maybe the time required to compress the output wasn't offset sufficiently by gains from reducing the file size. What size was the output?

Does anyone know if DEFLATE does anything to dynamic HTML that is
returned? Form the way the setup reads it in some ways sounds like it would
only work on static files. I turned it on but it did not appear to
make any difference on a large page returned from net.data
