WordPress HTML Minification Class to compress HTML (removal of whitespaces, line breaks, new lines, comments). Preserves script comments (if removed might break some javascripts like Google Analytics or Adsense) and IE specific tags.
/* Minifies HTML and removes comments (except IE tags and comments within script tags)
*
* To disable compression of code portions, use '<!--wp-html-compression no compression-->' tag
*
