I'll try to check later. Anyway, why are you so interested in deflate?  
Both "deflate" and "gzip" coding use the same algorithm and generate  
exactly the same compressed stream, the only difference being the header  
and tail format. Have you found any server supporting deflate that doesn't  
support gzip as well?
