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

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.
