    What would be the best way/format to export Indesign-created content for use on a website? These would be relatively simple. small (200x200px) ads.

    If you've designed the ad in Indesign at 200x200 px, just export as jpeg.

    Personally, when I need a small JPEG from either Id, I generally export as a PDF(Print) with all compression set to None. I then open the PDF in Ps and use its "Save for Web & Devices..." to generate a small JPEG for email, web, or whatever the need. I like managing the resampling and compression in Ps.

    The final results can be better than exporting from Id as a JPEG, with the format's lossy compression, and then resampling the JPEG in another program.
