Good caution for authors who care about being seen on PDAs. Such
might also want to avoid IMGs. But given current displays, PDA users
won't be browsing around for presentation-rich content--a text-only
browser might be best.

With TVs, barring HDTV there'll be a loss of resolution. But relative
real estate won't decrease. Common RGB->Composite converters start at
640 x 480 resolution, so where's the problem?
