 # Don't compress images
 SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \.(?:gif|jpe?g|png)$ no-gzip dont-vary
 SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \.(?:exe|t?gz|zip|bz2|sit|rar)$ no-gzip dont-vary
 SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \.pdf$ no-gzip dont-vary

 # Make sure proxies don't deliver the wrong content
  Header append Vary User-Agent env=!dont-vary

This configuration will compress everything except for images. Of course, you can’t test this with curl, but you can test it with Firefox and LiveHTTPHeaders. If you don’t have Firefox handy, you can try a very handy web application that will give you the statistics about the compression of your site’s data.
