Huh? PDF supports G4 fax compression and the newer JBIG compression
algorithms, which until very recently (with the advent of JBIG2) were
the to highest-compression lossless bilevel algorithms publicly available.
I stick to G4 because it's not encumbered by patents, but JBIG can
compress about 5-10% better.

For continuous-tone images, PDF supports JPEG compression and a few other

What formats are you claiming have better compression than PDF?
