I have answered my own question, but it took about half hour of
searching to find this.

Here is a great reference site exactly on this subject....

http://www.gballard.net/psd/go_live_page_profile/embeddedJPEGprofiles.html

For people like me, I recommend reading it thoroughly AND following all
his links.  It does go on a bit, but there are many pearls in it.  Too
bad he does not seem to talk about Gimp, but the content is still great.
