Images and CSS generating a lot of bandwidth

Hi Gerard Beekmans. You said the following on 09/19/03 23:31:

The stylesheet is already optimized for size - I can shave a couple of 
bytes off but nothing that will gain you much. Using long lines (no 
wrapping) already shrunk the size, removing the comments will gain .2kb 
(I just tried); which hardly seems worth removing since it's valuable 
information for maintainence.

I've CC'ed Craig, maybe he knows some way to optimize the images, though 
I don't have much hope here either (maybe a couple of kb's without 
degrading the quality a lot?)
