cg> * I've confirmed [in the distsnt past] that Rembrandt.Panel can scale

I've never learned to use Rembrandt.Panel.  Pity there 
isn't an instruction document similar to that for Leonardo.

cg> Q1. does this only apply to *.Pict ?

Probably.  Can Rembrandt open any file other than Pict?

cg> Q3. Since converting:  *.gif <--> *.Pict is possible under n-o

PictConverters has *.gif --> *.Pict.  Where is *.Pict --> *.gif ?

cg> Q3. Since converting:  *.gif <--> *.Pict is possible under n-o, can
I rescale *.gif ?

Converting to Pict seems too inefficient for Web browsing.

How about writing fast scaling commands as part of
the Images package?

cg> Often the text is good but a diagram is too 'course' and overflows 
the display.

Web browsing capabilities in Oberon and AOS certainly 
leave many opportunities for improvements.
