anyone have hints if width="x" or width="x%" in the <img src> is enough
to take care of the scaling? (some browsers rescale ugly, others blend)

e.g. I put a fairly large dimension screenshot into the G6 d.correlate.sh
help page yesterday:

good/no good?

How about using svn symlinks? Then there is only wasted space on Windows and the g_module_imgname.{png,jpg} naming convention for help page images could be preserved.
(Subversion takes care of all the platform details)
or probably better just have the main r3 intro doc supply the image, then just have the other help pages <img src=""> to it assuming that it will be there in $GISBASE/docs/. I don't think it even needs "../" since they all live in the same install dir.

gimp can read+write compressed files directly, so suggest to keep any .xcf files in svn as .xcf.bz2. (note mime-types remain on the internal content type, not the compression type used.)

perhaps the README should mention that r3.out.vtk + Paraview was used to make the screenshot? (it looks like it anyway)  Also, I'd also suggest to rename the README to something more specific as it sits in a top-level dir and one might assume it contains high-level instructions.
