FYI The EPS out of Visio works great unless I have curves- circles,
ellipses, etc. Then it looks like junk.
So, I went to TIFF out of Visio and after figuring out the Docbook
imagedata sizing parameters, the images starting coming out in the PDF.
I went back to JPEG hoping that I could simply create one file that
would solve both the HTML and the print issue.
Unfortunately, the Docbook sizing information isn't forward into the
HTML, and I decided it would be simpler to simply save two JPEG versions
rather than figure out how to get it automatically into the HTML.
I don't see any print difference between 600 dpi JPEG or 600 dpi TIFF.
However, file size seems to grow faster with JPEG and it may take a
little longer to print, so I may fall back to TIFF if performance
becomes an issue. I would prefer to stick with JPEG so that I don't
have to deal with Docbook profiling.
So, my processing is currently Docbook(XML) -> xsltproc(FO) -> XEP (PDF)
with Visio used to create JPEGS.
Thanks for all the suggestions.
