I guess if you use a compression mechanism that HTTP supports (I think 
GZip is one) *AND* the client supports it you /may/ be able to send the 
compressed contents to the end user and have their user agent decompress 
the contents.  However all of these things have to be in place for this 
bandwidth savings to happen and if it doesn't, there is the added load 
on the processor.
