Could always give it a go though. See what happens.
That is already done using techniques like yahoo smush. The individual file sizes is already optimized. But there are many individual files, which is the real issue.
So many images ( with each around 300 bytes) and thus many requests. I want to lower those number of requests. So any ideas?
