Actually, it's that Frame converts the EPS *preview* image,
usually a very low-resolution TIFF, rather than the real EPS
graphic (PostScript).  The EPS preview is meant only for 
identification of the graphic, not for actual use...

That will work.  You could use GhostScript, which
is a free PostScript interpreter:

with the free converter ImageMagick:

Or you could use a commercial converter, such as
ps2bitmap from Square One:

One thing to watch out for is that Frame's native HTML
conversion names the graphics by chapter file name and 
sequence number.  So if you add or delete a graphic, 
many of those numbers will change.  This can be a nasty
surprise at deadline... and we don't know any way to
work around it.

If you were to use our product, Mif2Go, to produce the HTML,
you'd still need to convert the EPS graphics separately to
get decent resolution.  However, we name graphics by their 
Frame ObjectIDs, which do not change unless you *copy* and 
paste the graphic into another location (*cut* and paste 
keeps the same ID).  So you would avoid surprises.  ;-)

HTH!
