When you mention low/high resolution, you must mean the embedded photos, right?

The solution: take the photos out of the on-line edition and replace with hyperlinks or menus for selecting desired size & resolution. Perhaps put in small thumbnails (64x48 pixels) for the user to be able to decide whether or not to download each photo.

Most of the contemporary word processing programs will let you generate both PDF and HTML from the master text. 12 pages of pure-text PDF/HTML should load in well under a minute over a 28.8 line. In FrameMaker, it should be possible to generate the on-line editions and the version for the typesetter with very little additional effort on the part of the newsletter editor.
