In Apache Im enabling output compression with the addition of the next to my .htaccess file:

# compress text, html, javascript, css, xml:
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/plain
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/css
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/xhtml+xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/rss+xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/javascript
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-javascript

# Or, compress certain file types by extension:
<Files *.html>
SetOutputFilter DEFLATE
</Files>

So I am serving all quite happy with Content-Encoding: gzip however when I test my web page with Yslow I receive:

Grade D on Compress components with gzip

There are 3 plain text components that should be sent compressed

* http://mysite.com/javascript/youTubeEmbed/youTubeEmbed-jquery-1.0.css
* http://mysite.com/javascript/jquery.swfobject.1-1-1.min.js
* http://mysite.com/javascript/youTubeEmbed/youTubeEmbed-jquery-1.0.js

Where's the issue?Should not they get compressed instantly??

thanks

Have you make sure to obvious your cache before reloading the page and running Yslow?

I'd the identical problem and glued it like this. This really is my code:

AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/plain
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/css
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/xhtml+xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/rss+xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/javascript
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-javascript
