For FrameMaker users:

96 ppi/dpi is the setting I'm told is the best in WebWorks, although
most people seem to use 120 ppi/dpi in their graphics as imported into
FrameMaker. No definitive guide for this yet exists, that I know of.

I've learned to distrust the PNG. They're big and don't appear to look
any better than JPGs, but at least they're copyright free (as if anyone
important cares).
