In addition to what Mark said, I'd seriously consider using NLS settings that don't convert your database to us7ascii. That loses the top bit of the characters. It seems inevitable people underestimate what characters are in their database, especially when they say "this database will _never_ use any non-US characters." It's been a bad default back to Oracle7, at least.
Read the compress=y definition of export in the utilities manual very carefully.
