Then generate a bitmap with height=112*15 and horizontal
resolution 17/15 of the vertical.

Count pixels in each 17*15 rectangle to get a value 0-255 and thus get a
gray bitmap.

pbm2png from pdf2html (see freshmeat) does exactly that.

The resulting bitmap should have baseline in 5/24 of height (counted from bottom).
