Are we sure about this? I mean PNGs allow for a separate PPI for  
printing and screen display. I always assumed that apps like Rev used  
the PPI information for printing.

Is this just Rev that is ignoring the other formats and just focusing  
on the pict format? I haven't test this and would really like to know  
what others have found.

Thanks Stephen,
