Zip Web Page

Hi All,

I have a web page that I need to compress very small, under 200kb to fit to an appliance.  Right now it is about 227KB zipped.  Does anyone know a good tool/way to get it a bit smaller?  Right now I am using winzip.

THanks

Well, if you are only getting about 50% compression I would say that the file is not mostly text.  I would say that it has some type of "binary or image" data.  That type of data does not compress well, if at all.

You can also try 7-Zip (also with compression level).

Another vote for 7-zip (abandoned winzip a few years ago). :-)

If you have it zipped and you are at 27k difference, perhaps optimizing an image just a little will tip the scale for you without compromising image quality.

Are your css files and js files minified?

Just a couple small items and you are there.

How big is the source file(s) unzipped?

What type of files are they: text or binary?

Oh, and trying to increase the compression level in your zip software should reduce the size some more, at the cost of CPU though.

You need to make sure that your appliance supports that level of compression.

May I ask, what type of appliance only supports a web page that is compressed and under  200KB?
