I went to http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/ & downloaded "This version, gzip'ed PDF file" using Internet Explorer 6.0.  What I got was a file much larger than specified & it wasn't zipped.  I could just use it as is.
 
I also downloaded the same file using Netscape 6.2.3.  The resulting file was the size specified & I had to unzip it to use it.  Could you explain to me why I got two different results using the two different browsers?  This is a mystery to me & I'd very much like to understand it.
 
Thank you very much for your help.
