I am sorry I misuderstood your question... I'll try this out with both
xemacs w3 and netscape 4.0b5 tout-de-suite...

w3 -- went bad, it asked me a file name and saved an *unzipped* copy
      of the file to it...

netscape -- idem

Mmmm... this sounds pretty logical to me, if you ask for a compressed file
you want to save it... even if the server unzips it for you... snort!

Sorry again,

PS - If you dont change the links in the HTML source all goes fine,
you'll obtain what you are looking for... I cast my vote against
the modification of every foo.html link into foo.html.gz.
