set up mod_deflate on Apache

I have been working on improving my web sites page load and I have measured with Firefox YSlow.
I think i have gzip compression set up properly on my server but I can not get the css files from CSS Sculptor to compress.

On this particular site I get this message

Grade C on Compress components with gzip

There are 2 plain text components that should be sent compressed

* screen.css
* print.css

my .htaccess file is this
<FilesMatch "\.(ico|pdf|flv|jpg|jpeg|png|gif|js|css|swf)$">
Header set Expires "Sun, 01 Jan 2012 20:00:00 GMT"
</FilesMatch>
<FilesMatch "\.(js|css|html|htm|php|xml)$">
SetOutputFilter DEFLATE
</FilesMatch>

Thanks for your help,
Jim Balthrop

I've never used mod_deflate so cant really offer much assistance, this is really a question for an Apache forum.


most examples I am seeing of the FilesMatch code are using 2 slashes:
<FilesMatch "\\.(js|css|html|htm|php|xml)$">
