Subject: DOCBOOK-APPS: Ignoring image widths in HTML--a solution
A couple weeks back, Camille posed this question: >>>> I am using in my documents the same image format for both PDF and HTML outputs (PNG). Though I want to specify the width for PDF output but not for HTML. An option is to define two different imageobject but I find much easier to change the XSL template for imageobject and ignore the width. Can someone tell me the easier way to do so? <<<<< I've been working on solutions for the same problem. I, too, found the two-different-imageobjects solutions less than satisfactory (that whole dual source issue). So far, my best solution has been external to DocBook. In GIMP or PhotoShop, I can alter the resolution to find the optimum pixels/inch (pixels/mm) for a given size. An image that looks good in the browser at, say, 640 pixels wide will--at a resolution of 72 pixels/inch (2.8346 pixels/mm)--be too wide (8.9 in[225.8 mm]) for standard page outputs. Resetting the resolution to 110 pixels/inch (4.33 pixels/mm) reduces the print version to a printable width of 5.8 in ( 147.8 cm) while retaining the total pixel width unaffected for HTML output.
