Just a note that in apache 2.2 if you have mod_deflate setup you are better to serve only .html and let apache take care of compression (that said, most hosts do this half assed), if you contact me via email i can explain it some more if you’d like more information about it. Real shame we have nothing like drupal’s aggregate css and js files in wordpress as yet! Combine this with aggregated css and js and a mod_deflate apache… would make for a fast wordpress setup!
