The database advanced property 'Compress document data' reduces the size
of all document bodies (non-summary item data) in the database. In Lotus
Domino 8.0, this type of compression was available only for a database's

text elements in documents, and savings can be significant, especially
when a database contains lengthy documents including large graphic images.
This feature was introduced in Domino 8.0.1
