OK or res-x, res-y


so that we have pix-x, pix-y, res-x, res-y

OK.


btw, there is a slightly different isssue with fax: pix-x will be specified,
but pix-y may not. In this case, you cannot assume pix-y and pix-x are
equal. Many fax machines are designed to scale the image if you send them
images longer than the page they are printing on.
