I played with something like this a while ago. Interestingly, I found that my gzip'd table html had a smaller file size than the source png, even after png crush. Though I suspect I was doing something wrong to get a result like that.


perhaps your resolution when converted is slightly smaller than the original, and thus, after compression, the size is smaller than the source?

I'm confident that resolutions are identical. I am using colspan and rowspan to do two dimensional run-length encoding, which may account for the difference. Even so, it's a surprising result.
