Hi Ed, 

instead of using "impsize" you could try "dpi". This
attribute would at least respect the ratio of the imported graphic file.

The definition of "dpi" in the attlist is:
<!--ignored if impsize specified-->
(as described in the STRUCTURE

It would also produce a kind of scaling:

A graphic file originally designed for 300 dpi would have a smaller
representation if "dpi" is set to 400.
Of course, all files should have
equivalent resolution settings. 

I don't know how FrameMaker will
handle a dpi-related "size" with a PDF, though...
I have only used this
for tiff files. 

Good luck -

Question: Is there a scale attribute to define and use or a similar
mechanism. Or, maybe someone knows how to produce scaled PDF outputs.
