[tex-k] Raster (Bitmap) Images Handling in DVIPS(k)

Dear Sir,
Thanks for your reply. Can I ask some more questions? 
Is pdfLaTeX is superset of LaTeX or I should say can any LaTeX file be compiled in pdfLaTeX without any change except driver information (dvips to pdftex) if it is specified in TeX file. 
Is this assured that the result of compilation of the same file in LaTeX and pdfLaTeX will be identical in all cases?
Is every package which is available for LaTeX can be used with pdfLaTeX without any change or is full functionality of LaTeX available in pdfLaTeX
What about TIF? If I am not wrong it was supported by earlier version of pdfLaTeX but now it is not supported. What to do if I still want to use TIF with latest release of pdfLaTeX except converting TIF to PDF? Also same with EPS. Is there any package which can embeded them directly in the document without any manual conversion before compilation?

Thanks and Kind Regards

why not create PDF using pdflatex, and then convert the PDF output to
PS? thats a simple
transformation, using acroread or ghostscript.
