I've applied your patch, thanks.  The -r switch is really nice!

I think png is the right choice.

Just two things:

. It would be nice to have anti-aliased png images (i.e. with
  graylevels).  This is not an urgent thing...

. I think that the handling of headers and footers is not optimal or
  even buggy.  [I doubt whether headers and footers are useful at all
  in an HTML document (if -P-a is implemented I suggest to suppress it
  by default).]

  The left, middle, and right part are squeezed, separated by a single
  space; for example, I get

    man(1) Manual pager utils man(1)

  instead of

    man(1)            Manual pager utils             man(1)

  which looks quite strange.
