I agree, because PNG supports transparency, and because it gets better
compression than lossless JPEG. Unless there's a some good reason to
I don't know about (e.g., the latest version of a major browser or
popular feed reader supports JPEG only or something), PNG is the
better way to go, IMO.

Still? Holy cow. Not for much longer, I'll bet. I don't know the
exact date when JPEG was first introduced, but I'm pretty sure it was
already in widespread use (not as common as GIF, but the next closest
thing) when I first got internet access when I arrived at college
(think: Gopher, FTP, Telnet, TN3270, and Usenet; we didn't get NCSA
Mosaic until a few months later, and off-campus email a year or more
after that), so the twentieth anniversary has got to be coming up Soon.
That aside, however, PNG is a better format anyhow.
