   their electronic messages, the EDIINT community is starting to see a
   dramatic increase in the size of files transferred between trading

   transferred between trading partners. 

   This document will explain the rules and procedures for utilizing 
   compression(RFC 3274) within an EDIINT 'AS' message. It will also
