The article states: "I do not work with BMPs and PNGs because of their
history of volatility with certain programs. For example, PNGs allow for
transparency but print poorly and have been known to corrupt entire MS
PowerPoint presentations."

Is anyone familiar with these problems? I use PNG files almost
exclusively for screen captures, and they work fine in Word, PowerPoint,
and Visio.

I was also disappointed that the article mixed raster and vector file
types with no explanation. That's just the kind of information that a
novice would find useful, especially when working (as the article
suggests) in Visio.
