Sarah Harris sth -at- alpha -dot- sunquest -dot- com asks, among other things:

2. What's the optimal [graphic] file format for online publishing?

===============

The $64,000 question.

Since all graphics are converted to a BMP for display,
BMP is best, IF display speed is your only consideration.

Since BMPs are very large, BMP is your worst choice,
IF DASD is also a consideration. Of course, you can
always unzip your BMPs on the fly, but then, there
goes your display speed.

Between the above best and worst choices are a variety
of considerations such as zoomability (like that word),
which makes DXF your best choice. Other choices are
JPG for largest file in smallest space, GIF, which is
somewhere in the middle for size and speed.

Now that you have more questions than answers, let
me say that graphics have always been and still are
a pain and a half.
