As someone who acts as web monkey for various conference websites,
could I just say please use SVG.  Scalable formats are so much easier
for website designers to work with and pngs have a habit of looking
ugly when you're forced to scale them (which inevitably happens when
you have a bunch and you're trying to get them to look uniform).
