[texhax] Previewers and graphics

It seems that the latest version of Miktex's viewer (the one that comes 
with Miktex 2.7) can now handle graphics things like \rotate.  It does 
this by entering something called dvips mode. Presumably this means it 
runs dvips on the fly and then displays it.  (The installation 
automatically installs ghostscript.)

Can anyone tell me whether other recent previewers are doing the same? 
I ask this in order to know what to tell users of an online journal site 
that I do the tex editing for.  We had previously not even posted the dvi 
files of papers that used things like \rotate, but now we should change 
the policy.  But I wish to inform the users what will and will not work.
