 Description     : YUI Compressor - The Yahoo! JavaScript and CSS Compressor

The YUI Compressor is a JavaScript compressor which, in addition to removing
comments and white-spaces, obfuscates local variables using the smallest
possible variable name. This obfuscation is safe, even when using constructs
such as 'eval' or 'with' (although the compression is not optimal is those
cases) Compared to jsmin, the average savings is around 20%.

The YUI Compressor is also able to safely compress CSS files. The decision
on which compressor is being used is made on the file extension (js or css)


 The YUI Compressor was written and is maintained by:
     Julien Lecomte <jlecomte@yahoo-inc.com>
 The CSS portion is a port of Isaac Schlueter's cssmin utility.
