While re-reading the CUAP today in preparation for its siblings, I
noticed[1]:

[[
The HTTP headers sent by the server include:

Content-Type: application/postscript; qs=0.001
Content-Encoding: gzip

If saved locally, the filename on most computers should be html40.ps.gz
for the applications to recognize the file type.

Wrong: Saving this compressed PostScript document as html40.ps is likely
to confuse other applications.
]]


I also noticed the (equally wrong) opposite behaviour : the user-agent
uncompresses the resource, and yet saves it as .gz (or tgz).

I don't think this has been addressed yet in the comments (at least,
it's not listed in the comments page[2]), and it might be worth
including it in a later re-prublication of the note.
