Aside from specifying image compression, Photoshop has 3 JPG file format options:
* Baseline ("Standard")
* Baseline Optimized
* Progressive

The help says:

"The Baseline Optimized format optimizes the color quality of the image and can produce a slightly smaller file size, but is not supported by all Web browsers."

and other vaguely threatening things about progressive formats.

What are the pros & cons of each? Surely all browsers in use today support all formats? Any IE vs. NN issues?

Can anyone point me to an authoritative guide to this stuff? Or maybe one of you _is_ an authoritative guide & can explain it?
