Yes it does.

Which image type should I choose?

PNG is the preferred one. If you're concerned about very old browser, use GIF instead. Or JPEG.

Which code generator should I choose?

If you're on a webserver that disallows online connection from within php scripts, you should switch over to the QR Code Lib.

There is a red image instead of the QR Code image. What's wrong?

You're /qr-code-tag/data/ directory is not writeable. Please adjust your permissions. See Changing File Permissions.

This is a PHP / WordPress problem. See Sudden empty / blank page for large posts with WordPress for problem description and solutions.

The margin with the Google API differs from that one created by the QR Code Lib. Why?

Google Chart API creates a different margin. I can't tell you why - ask Google.

You can use the Google ZXing online service

Where I can download a barcode reader for my mobile device?

The plugin is not available in (_put a language in here_). Why?

Because no one translated it yet. How about you? See Plugin Help for translation hints!

There source code format does not follow WordPress standards. Why?

This plugin obeys the Zend Framework Coding Standard for PHP because the WordPress Coding Standard does not fit OOP, IMHO. Sorry Matt.
