As Dima said being able to download a gzip-ed file is not the point.
What Netscape, Opera, Lynx and many other browsers are able to do when
served a file of form: <something>.htm.gz (and other similar suffixes)
is to automatically decompress the file and then display it, just as
if it had been served <something>.htm.
Unfortunately, IE doesn't provide this feature.
