This mod works by removing unnessasary parts of the CSS file. This includes tabs, comments and any other whitespace. Your main CSS should be reduced to 1 line

It will work whether you have your CSS file just in the header or externally on a .css file.

To install just upload the XML file then you will have to rebuild your CSS. You do this by opening the style manager then on the drop down menu for your style click 'Main CSS'. Then scroll right down to the bottom and click save.

Good mod, but doesn't work totally for me, it only compress the first part, but not the Additional CSS Definitions. I'm using an external .css file for the style.

Thanks.

If you're not storing your CSS exeternally, I don't see how this does anything different than what gzip is already going to do for compression. Otherwise your web server should be set to deflate or gzip .css files.
