Don Peterson has recently converted the manual figures to the sizes
recommended by the GNOME doc guidelines. Specifically, the width of the
figures should not be larger than 510 pixels.
We personally like the new figure sizes. However, an important issue to
worry about is whether they are still legible and serve well as example

equal to a (U.S. Letter) page with 3/4 inch margins.
