I do know that. My only point is, it's the text that is most important to an e-book... the shape of it less so. E-books are a unique presentation medium, and they should not be expected to be "exactly like paper"... if that's what you want, buy the printed book (or convince the e-book publisher to include the image as an image... but not to try to find a convoluted way to bend, spindle and mutilate digital text).
