Actually, IE doesn't decompress it when it downloads it. Parts are 
decompressed each time it is viewed. Those 789,696 bytes are still 
compressed. I don't know what those 14,382 bytes are. Probably junk. It 
just seems a waste to have to bother with zipping and unzipping when it is 
already compressed and will remain compressed on the user's HD. But, if not 
being zipped is a problem for Netscape users I can zip it.
