OK, now, to everyone who digs this thread out of old archives¹,
please read http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.web.lynx.devel/7746
and http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=673452 then
convince your server operator to not offer a 'compress'ed encoding
unless they can actually do it.
A sum-up: GNU gunzip from the GNU gzip package can successfully
decode documents created by the original Unix compress(1) which
is what the 'compress' encoding actually uses. Using some kind
of gzip call, possibly with postprocessing, is ALWAYS WRONG for
this encoding type.
In particular, http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.gzcompress.php
provides a bytestream *NOT USABLE* for 'compress'ion!
① I’ve set the headers so it hopefully gets sorted into the old
thread; GMane might also find it using time-based sorting.

guy. But he's always right! In every fsckin' situation, he's right. Even
with his deeply perverted taste in software and borked ambition towards
broken OSes - in the end, he's damn right about it :(! […] works in mksh
