In the 1.0 release of the DocBook stylesheets, you'll be able to say 

  <graphic align="center" fileref="f1b-2"></graphic>

And the HTML stylesheet will include f1b-2.gif while the 
print stylesheet will include f1b-2.eps.

If you want more explicit control, you can use marked sections:

<graphic align="center" fileref="f1b-2.eps"></graphic>
<graphic align="center" fileref="f1b-2.gif"></graphic>

and set the %print; and %html; parameter entities yourself.

Leave off the endterm attribute and you should get
  "Figure #"

as the reference. The DocBook semantics are that if endterm is
specified, the _content_ of endterm is to be used as the xref
text.  I'm surprised that you don't get the graphic in the xref,

If you want to change the reference text (to leave out the word Figure,
for example), modify (gentext-xref-strings).
