Slightly self-contradictory but I totally concur.

FWIW: My free 'draft' copy of the Computer Art Primer on the HATT site goes
into a lot of these details. It itself is a PDF compressed RIGHT down to

goes a long way into explaining the relationships of graphic properties. One
could even say its a pre-req for knowing how to give good PDF :-)
