a small, illegible version appears to the right
It could be more legible than it is with proper resizing (or, more specifically, with proper resampling). I happen to be most familiar with XV, so I'll describe how to do it there, but I know other viewer/converters (and the GIMP) have similar capabilities.
In XV, make sure the mode is set to 24-bit (even for a palette image like this--smooth resizing requires more colors), set the size to whatever you like ("S" key or Image Size -> Set Size), smooth the reduced image ("s" key or Display -> Smooth), and then save it. As a PNG this will come out in RGB mode, but you can then reopen the small image, change the mode back to 8-bit, and save it as a colormapped PNG for a file-size reduction with minimal quality loss. Not everything in this particular image will be readable, but the legend certainly will be, as will much of the other text.
