This is what "mod_gzip_item_exclude reqheader" is for.

Netscape 4.x is
- using HTTP/1.0 _and_
- sending "Accept:encoding: gzip"
- _and_ lying about its abilities.
Great combination, eh? ;-)

On the other hand, disabling HTTP/1.1 is the _cause_
of the problem (with M$IE), _not_ the solution.

Greetings, Michael
