Well, I am no expert on .htaccess, but it does seem to be powerful, so .....

Instead of simply having ,htaccess use LCS for all htm/html files, can 
it not rewrite the URL to run a particular LC script, and pass the 
original URL name as a parameter? Then the LCS script can simply output 
the relevant encoding statement, followed by the originally-requested 
html file.
