Not really, because we don't know what the source data is beyond it being
300-400 characters. Theory states it's impossible to compress all strings
into smaller strings - and wishing otherwise will not make it work in
practice - so you're going to have to narrow it down a bit for us.

Also, what do you mean by "characters"? Do you mean "bytes" or some other
encoding? What you're trying to do seems quite muddled and smells doomed to
failure to me.
