WOFF mime-type missing in Gzip section of .htaccess #1135

The WOFF mime-type for webfonts is declared in the .htaccess like this:

AddType application/x-font-woff woff

However it's not showing up in the Gzip compression rules: Gzip compression is applied to EOT (, TTF (x-font-ttf) and OTF (font/opentype), but not to WOFF (x-font-woff).

Has WOFF been ommitted by purpose for some technical reason, or is it simply missing?

WOFF is already compressed, so it doesn’t need to be gzipped by the server. See

Thanks for keeping an eye out, though!
