Compressing test for short strings

Data is getting bigger and bigger as technology advances. We didn't even think about using something inefficent like XML when I started writing sourcecode on a Datapoint 6600 or even in MS-DOS world, but today? A meg more or less doesn't matter today. But sometimes space is still premium and so it is for my current project. I'm working with short strings (text plus some extra chars, about 6 bit  per char) and they should be compressed.
