For prettiness, I'm moving to CSS3 for several elements, so...
BTW, Opera users may notice some additional debug info at the bottom of certain pages. This is a really useful quirk - I hope they don't fix it. :P
All pages are compressed with GZIP before serving them. To reduce processor use and improve speed a little bit more, each compressed file is cached locally and is only updated when the source file's timestamp changes.
IE works fine with gzip compression, with one caveat. When the option for HTTP/1.1 for Proxies is disabled in the advanced options, IE doesn't send send an ACCEPT_ENCODING header - page loading speeds will therefore not benefit from compression. It must be enabled in the advanced options before it will.
It has recently come to my attention that some proxies (my experience was with an as yet unknown version of WinGate) will cache compressed content, but when this cached page is sent to a browser it will fail to send an accompanying Content-Encoding header, resulting in junk being shown on the page.
That, to say the least, just sucks.
Here are the current settings for GZIP compression :
