Website: File size mismatch

First of all, thanks for a wonderful project!

I have a minor nit to report:

On the homepage at, under the Download jQuery Heading the gzipped and minified jQuery is reported as being 16kb in size, but when I am directed to the Google code page for this file, it is reported as being 54.5KB in size.

What's the story behind this apparent tripling in size of the gzipped and minified file?

Also, does the jQuery team need any docs or web help?

Thanks again!

The 16kb comes after the gzipping, which happens on the server side.

As for documentation help, feel free to look through the documentation and add/cleanup/improve any documentation you feel could be better. Thanks.
