I see this 2 attachments — Download all attachments *** (zipped for
   Dutch
) ***

I don't know where it is good for, but I don't think I saw this before.... Did someone else see it?

Hey Art-One, good to have you back :)

Can you post an image as well, cause i'm pretty sure i've seen this before.
Thanks :)

I did see the " Download all attachments " link, but i didn't see the " zipped for.. " feature.

Good catch :)

It only appears when there is a äöüß (for example) in one of the filenames.

doesn't look like greasemonkey script or anything i've ever seen.

Elementary, my dear Art-One &al. ;-))

The answer to your query pops up when searching BG for the least common denominator phrase of "zipped.for"
blogoscoped.com/search/?q=zipp ...

... while the most plausible explanation in that thread came from Bilal: "the zip algo uses some coding related to letter frequency which is different in each language (Huffman)."
