comment Spacing around image
IMHO, the top edge of the image should align at <x-height> above the baseline of the first line, and the bottom edge with the baseline of the last line. Thus the spacing should be \baselineskip-<x-height> (on all four sides, I think). Dunno the best way to achieve this...

Are you working one-sided or two-sided? If two-sided, what do you want to do on even pages?

comment Is there an advantage to using LaTeX graphics instead of eps or pdf?
Hope you don't mind, Martin; I took the liberty of making the correction...
