> How is an image or any other "data" different from HTML?
I don't know whether it's the issue, but take the DEFLATE filter
(mod_deflate) - that works only on HTML "data".  Although we sometimes take
our understanding that HTTP payloads can be generic data for granted,
sometimes the data type does make a difference at some small point in the
server - like a HTML-aimed module.  Now in this case, it could be that, for
example, mod_deflate is gzipping all content, which while it *should* be OK,
is not supported by most browsers (which mostly accept only gzipped HTML)
