 Varnish should have the ability to store and serve a compressed version of
 a document even if the backend server delivered it uncompressed.  This
 requires some care, as some older browsers (notably the Netscape 4 series)
 claim to support compression but don't.

 A good starting point for information on how to do this in a robust manner
 would be Apache's mod_deflate:
