crockford made a good point about compressing js files

his major beef with the common js compress utils that remove whistspace *and* obfuscate the code by renaming vars, etc. is that the second step has the chance of introducing bugs.

i know that some of the compressed files i work with always *bork* firebug or ms script debugger, too.

he also pointed out that using gzip is a big way to reduce bandwidth - good point.

i guess i need to add a quality whitespace remover and some gzip 'judo' to my list of things to do.
