What we do, is using PNG files for graphics.  PNG supports setting
resolution and jadetex produces PDF nicely with it.  But you need a
tool that handles PNG resolution (like GhostScript >= 5.50).  So we
pre-prepare the graphics before using jade.  The bad thing is that you
cannot specify within the SGML-document your resolution.

For structured vector graphics, we use the epstopdf tool, which
produces encapsulated PDF.  We use plain PDF notation for this.

Hope this helps,
