Original message asked about a low cost solution for an intranet. The only acceptable format is PNG.

 One can expect that all users can upgrade their

browsers. Most browsers are free software; other are available for zero cost.

GIF will cost you at least $5000 in the license fees. See details in: http://www.unisys.com/unisys/lzw/lzw-license.asp

JPEG is not good for bi-level images.

Note though that not all browsers support PNG. See: http://www.cdrom.com/pub/png/pngapbr.html

So most browsers support a simple PNG image without alpha.
