NO.  ZIP comression is a lossless file compression format.

 I tested the files roundtrip.   I  uploaded the original CIF file to my 
own wa8lmf.net server.  Then Scott downloaded it to his server, added my 
readme (which I created as an afterthought addition to the ZIP archive) 
and then re-uploaded to his server. 

I then downloaded all 540MB  from his server back to my PC, opened it 
and made a disk to verify everything was perfect before announcing the 
CD on the various mailing lists today. 

The issue is as I explained in my previous post.  The mixed-mode CD 
autoruns the file display of the CD-ROM part but DOES NOT start playing 
the audio part automatically.  You have to launch it with the audio CD 
player applet in the Windows Entertainment group to make the audio play.
