No... It's not fine. I don't want to rely on the printing program making a near copy of the manual - I want the real thing!

300 Dpi figures to be about 1 meg per sqin of a Pic.
Not after JPEG'ed.

If its for Display only..96 DPI is fine...Print format.. Id suggest 150.
No, it is not for display only. 150 dpi is just not good enough. Have you ever tried to print a full A4 sheet at 150 dpi? It sucks.

Embedded pics, ok, or even Pics included with the RTF format with Footnotes to tell which Pic to look at.

How much work do you want me to do?? I don't want to recreate the layout of manuals - it is doing to take long enough just scanning and wacking into PDF.

Besides, I would end up with something that was not how the original was. Not very good for a preservation project!
