  • Comment It is a really great image, but i'm not thrilled about the fact it is a .djvu. I think that most users, like myself, will come across this image, and not know how to view the full res, or how to properly save and open the file. The same could be said of a pdf file, but that is more of the standard and most users know how to deal with such a format. Is there a specific reason why this is in djvu format? smooth0707 (talk) 01:57, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
    • Yes. It was originally researched and uploaded as a request from Wikisource to illustrate featured content of theirs. DurovaCharge! 02:09, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Oppose Needs to be in a more common format, so we can fix the annoying tilt... ;-) --Janke | Talk 07:28, 7 September 2008 (UTC)\
  • Oppose Not opposed to the format, but the quality isn't great. Very noticeable jpeg artefacts (viewed in Evince). —Pengo 09:28, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
