While this may be true, I've never noticed a 'poor' screen quality from using higher resolution images. I never noticed any noticeable difference from using higher resolution images. However, lower, 72-dpi images printed on a laser printer (300dpi+) show poorly. The only "problem" with higher resolution imaages, is that they have a larger filesize, affecting download time. > You might also consider 'redesigning' the graphs to work better > across multiple resolutions.

When making horizontal "bar graphs", I've had success "drawing" the bars using HTML tables with the bgcolor attribute set to red or blue. I just make the width a percentage, and each bar looks great. One other benefit to this system, is that (in HTML mail) this technique doesn't require a internet access via the mail client. Hope this info is useful! Web Maestro Clay
