Yeah, that looks way more complicated than what I was hoping for.  Talked with 
the sysadmin about it and he agreed, even though he implemented it on at least 
one of our dev servers.  We may roll that back in light of your suggestion

That looks better, much less complex and fragile.  I see in the 
"<httpCompression> element in applicationHost.config" that you can specify 
mimeType's - perfect.  We'll see what the SA thinks.

The other option the SA and I talked about was dropping IIS altogether.  ;-)
