He's wrong, they *are* .gz files.  I don't just add that extension to them,
it gets added automatically when I zip them.  His Netscape is obviously
configured to gunzip any .gz files it downloads so he doesn't even realize
they were zipped in the first place!  Not all browsers do this, so some
people will have to download the files and then gunzip them manually.
