Yes the resolution problem is mostly for images. Not screen captures, but 
vector images that are drawn using tools such as dia, visio, freehand etc.

David suggests using different images in the source. I am already doing this. 
When I transform for FO only I am using images that have a higher quality 
than those I use for HTML. They are naturally larger in size and there is a 
distinct difference in the image quality when viewed using GIMP. This is to 
be expected.

Yet, the result in PDF is not as good as when I create a postscript of the 
document with FRAME or WORD and a ppd provided by the printer. I can also see 
the difference on screen.
