Jade uses the INCLUDEPICTURE field instruction which doesn't provide a
way to do scaling.  The alternative would be use use some OLE magic and
include the picture as a bitmap, but that would work only on Windows and
wouldn't take advantage of Word's graphic filters.

One way to fix this might be to generate in addition to the RTF a VB
macro that would fix the scaling of the pictures.
