[Phpmyadmin-devel] IE 6, CSS and mod_gzip

from the French forum (maybe other forums).
First the problem: IE 6 does not like CSS compressed by mod_gzip, so it skips 
all CSS formatting.

Apache knows that, and supposedly does not compress .css files, but in our case 
the file is ./css/phpmyadmin.css.php.

Solution: a .htaccess
<IfModule mod_gzip.c>
mod_gzip_on no

but we don't want to include a .htaccess in our main directory, due to problems 
on servers that do not allow users to have a .htaccess.

Can we do something better than a FAQ entry?
