Hi, Richard!

Perhaps an easier way . . .

First, you have to determine what the best resolution for browser display is
going to be. This is basically trial and error and depends on image detail, the
amount of screen real estate you're willing to give away, and your own design
conscience.

Second, (you seem to have already done this), determine the best resolution for
print media.

Now, import a given graphic (by reference or embedded) using the print
resolution. Assign a conditional text tag to the anchored frame containing the
graphic. Name the tag "print" or something similar.

Now, create a second anchored frame and import the same graphic again, this
time using the HTML resolution. Assign this graphic a different conditional
text tag, named "HTML" or something similar.

At conversion time, set up Publisher to "see" only the HTML conditional text
tag. The print tagged graphics are not "seen" and not converted.

I do this regularly and it seems to work well.

Hope this helps,
Craig Sanders
