Enabling HTTP compression

Is anything special required to enable HTTP compression (gzip) with Orchard?

I have added this to my web.config - <urlCompression doStaticCompression="true" doDynamicCompression="true" /> - but content is not being compressed.

My Orchard website is deployed to Azure Websites.

How did you verify it?

Response headers in Firebug/Chrome dev tools say no compression.

I'm pretty sure it is Azure Websites that is the problem, I just want to double check that there is nothing special required with Orchard to enable HTTP compression.

Not that I know of.

I think I have seen a tweet about an issue like this on WAWS
