Compression of rails generated content?

I’m a big believer in mod_compress to make my applications more
responsive over wan connections. I notice that in config/lighttpd.conf
mod_compress is loaded. But the http headers do not show my app’s
content to be compressed? What do I need to do to gzip compress my
Rails generated content?

Thanks,
Steve B.

Plugins:

http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/Output+Compression+Plugin
http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/Better+Output+Compression+Plugin

I recommend the former, but I’m probably biased.

The former is plugged in and apparently working. My users and I thank
you. At least they will when I get this project finished and deployed.
