Re: [NANOG] support.microsoft.com?
It looks to me like they are doing file compression on the site. (E.g., there seems to be an index.html.gz file there.) This practice is described in "High Performance Web Sites" and other fine publications. I would be curious to know if this is a problem with Lynx or with their site setup.
