Well, Response.Filter is where I'd start:

But I don't know eliminating all whitespace is what you'd do, cuz you'd
have to figure out how to detect if you were inside of a tag (don't want
to just erase all spaces, etc.). You wouldn't strip out whitespace like
that.

But you could strip out things like Tab characters (if this is what you
meant). crlf's I thought were problematic when I tried it for a client
(for their pages), but I can't think of why (I thought it caused
problems in Javascript. As long as every line ends with ; the JS should
still run fine. Unless you use the <!-- // --> wrapper around
scripts, as I don't think this can go all on the same line. Example:

<script language="javascript">
<!--
alert('hello');
// -->
</script>

It sounds like he only wants to filter out line breaks, for whatever reason.
