Yes.
Either by using ark (KDE's compression tool), file-roller (GNOME's) or
by using the command line zip/unzip tools.

Thanks, Gilboa. I just took the time to compress in both formats, and
I see that they both compress to exactly the same size! 550 MB of .doc
compressed to 441 MB in both the Maximum compression schemas. And the
regular compression, which compressed much faster, compressed to 442
MB. So I'll just use the regular compression schema.

Thanks for the quick answer, though!
