IIRC Netscape 4.7 did interpret it - the most popular browser at the time.

I think the problem was only introduced when the site switched to HTML 4.01 
Strict - the attribute is marked deprecated for Transitional.

IMHO, just remove it! BTW, I use the following CSS for <ul class="compact"> 
on one of my sites:

  ul.compact li { padding-bottom: 0ex; }

(For NS 4.7, the compact attribute removed the vertical spacing between 
bullets, it did not affect the letter spacing.)
