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.
