PageMaker does do a terrible job of converting images for web documents. I
have three suggestions that will help you tremendously.

1. Don't use PageMaker to create web documents. Recreate the look you want
with a good visual editor, s/a MS FrontPage, Adobe PageMill, or
Macromedia's DreamWeaver.

2. For images, use Adobe Photoshop 5. Nothing beats it.

3. Buy "Photoshop for the Web," by O'Reilly Publishers. No other book I've
seen lays it out better on how to make crisp, small images for the web.

Hope this helps!
