    Is the minify capability in addition to, a replacement of, or in conflict with other minify plugins such as WP Minify?

    In particular, is there anything that WP minify handles that your plugin does not?

    And if there is a conflict or a a capability not supported does disabling your minify feature allow the other plugins to operate safely?

    Replacement and therefore in conflict.

    In particular, is there anything that WP minify handles that your plugin does not?

    No, quite the opposite.

    And if there is a conflict or a a capability not supported does disabling your minify feature allow the other plugins to operate safely?

    No because the warning will not disappear even if minify is disabled. Regardless there are no other more robust or more feature complete implementations of minify for WP. Check the development version for more insight.

    Thanks for your detailed reply.

    The reason I asked about completeness is that I have noticed extra whitespace in the minified versions of static pages. In fact a view source of a minified page shows that not only is there whitespace (0x20 space) in the file, there are sequences of several blanks in a row. All of those spaces can be compressed out.

    The instances I have noticed are within links, typically between the attribute fields.

    For example <a title="explain" href="link">. There are two spaces right before the href= that are not necessary AFAICT.

    Do you need a dump of such a page source?

    What minifier is used? Line break removal is used?
