Topic: Compress fonts inside assets like application.css and application.js

My dev Env is as follows,

Rails 3.2.8
gem 1.7.2
ruby 1.9.2.p290

when i precompile assets for production environment; application.css and application.js are served in zip(.gz) format likewise is it possible to compress the fonts in zip(.gz) format ( i have placed it inside assets folder) and  serve to the application so that the loading time will still be reduced in my production environment. I use CDN to serve my assets.

Compressing fonts with gzip can reduce the number of bytes sent over the network and increase page speed significantly. Any idea whether this is viable, kindly suggest.
