I don't have any documentation pointers on this, but I hesitate to use
jpeg format because I have heard (and I think I've seen) that it is a
*lossy* format. That is, every time you load a jpeg image, it changes
slightly. The colors change. If you compare a freshly-made jpeg with
a jpeg that's been modified a few times, I think you'll find the
colors have changed (even though you haven't touched them). GIF
format does not have this problem. So it comes down to "You never
want to edit a jpeg file" --- which can be a real pain.

(And yes, some browsers do not yet support jpeg).
