HI Everyone:

I am trying to gzip/compress the css and js files on my site. I have set up my htaccess to include the following:

# BEGIN Gzip
<IfModule mod_deflate.c>
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/plain
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/css
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/javascript
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/xhtml+xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/rss+xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/javascript
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/js
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-javascript
BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4 gzip-only-text/html
BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4.0[678] no-gzip
BrowserMatch bMSIE !no-gzip !gzip-only-text/html
</IfModule>
# END Gzip

from what i can tell the css files are compressed. but when i run pagespeed I am getting a warning that the js files are NOT compressed. When i go to whatsmyip.org to see if gzip is running the test passes.

Is this an error on pagespeed? or perhaps i am not included something in the htacess?

I am also aware that my hosting provider has mod_deflate enabled.

Thanks for nay advice on this!
