.iso is an uncompressed format
Authored by: Lectrick on Jan 30, '04 11:08:30AM

the ISO image standard does not allow internal compression. You'll have to gzip or stuff or zip (or whatever) the resulting file, if you want to send it or whatever.

This is partly why I'm a big fan of compressed DMG's... no muss no fuss. but also no interoperability with lesser OS'es ;)
