That's true generally.  Anything other than actual photographs (continuous tone images) should NOT be run through JPEG because JPEG is not intended for, and unfit for, anything else.  Printouts, line drawings, and anything else with crisp edges between dark and light will be messed up by JPEG.  PNG and TIFF are examples of appropriate compression schemes.
