I despise that particular option. The first reason is that it seems to
use a *screen dump* to generate the large images - whatever res your
screen is, that's the size of the big images.

The second is that I'd really like text output to be text.

The mgp2html script that I talked about seems to produce output like:
http://pig.slug.org.au/talks/Numeric/slides.html which is pretty ugly,
but does seem to be text. Emma might be able to make something like
that, but better :)
