Gzipping xhtml pages

Thanks, I didn't think about the content-length. But I'm still having 
the same problem with larger pages not being gzipped:

Browser request:
GET /xhtml.xhtml HTTP/1.1
Host: www.domain.com
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-GB; rv: 
Gecko/20091102 Firefox/3.5.5 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8
Accept-Language: en-gb,en;q=0.5
Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate
Accept-Charset: ISO-8859-1,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7
Keep-Alive: 300
Connection: keep-alive
Authorization: Basic password

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Server: nginx
Date: Sat, 28 Nov 2009 11:44:22 GMT
Content-Type: application/xhtml+xml
Connection: keep-alive
Content-Length: 732

Accept-Ranges: bytes

I forgot to mention what version of Nginx I'm running - it's 
nginx/0.7.6. Also, my webhost runs Nginx on the front end, which proxies 
requests to my installation of Nginx. I don't know if this would make 
any difference (I did check it was my installation that was gzipping the 
css and js by turning off gzip and then checking if the css and js were 
still being gzipped or not, and they weren't, so my installation can 
definitely gzip files okay, just seems like it won't gzip 
application/xhtml+xml files).
