An alternative to this scheme is to use mod_gzip 
(http://www.remotecommunications.com/apache/mod_gzip/). This module is 
capable of compressing any HTTP data, static as well as dynamically 
generated. I use it successfully e.g. on the mod_python based site 
www.get2stamps.com. The gzip compression reduces the transfer time for tables 
with much similar data by more than 80%!
