Does anyone does if this has been done, and if it would be even worth it?

What if you had a simple compression algorithm, compressed your webpages,
and then had the decompression function in javascript.  The client would
download the page, the javascript decompression function would run, and
finally a document.write.  Obviously, the function would have to be fast and
small, but you could stuff it in an external javascript file for caching.

So you would just send people this:

<script src="/Decompress.js"></script>


The string is the source to the entire page in compressed format.

Am I crazy?!
