Sure (wb.html was extracted from the default kobo English dictionary):
Code:
# file /tmp/wb.html
/tmp/wb.html: gzip compressed data, from Unix, last modified: Thu May 26 10:47:26 2011, max compression
gzip/gunzip are very badly behaved - unix/linux programs are supposed to look at the contents, not care about the extension. gunzip -S html will actually work, though.
