A much more efficient way is to activate "gzip" compression for your pages. It not only handles white space efficiently (and correct for e.g. pages with "pre" tags or similar CSS directives) it also compresses other text. You not only gain 25 % but about 70 % (in the size of requests). You will not save RAM on the server side (of course), but hopefully (and very likely) the scripts are not the major user of RAM on your site. -- Dieter _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
