Description

This information from Koen Deforce is very important IMO: For static files, the server will not compress on the fly, but will serve a compressed version of the file if it finds one (e.g. style.css.gz for style.css).

It is safe to assume that performance, and therefore page load speed, is important for Wt developers. Compressed CSS files may noticeably improve page load speed. I think this feature should be properly documented at least in this section on built-in httpd.
