Two questions for Sean re the following snips from his separate posts:

> What you should do is print PDF from Visio using the Distiller printer
> (you need Acrobat for this) and then Save the PDF as EPS. Otherwise,
> maybe EMF will do in a pinch (Visio really needs some work in the
> EPS-creation dept.)

1. Why only "in a pinch"? What's the disadvantage in working with EMFs for
vector images?

> Non-lossy compression is used in things like PNG, where the compression
> algorithm does not discard data from the file.

2. Is there *any* disadvantage in using PNGs for raster images?
