[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] Advise on embedding images on docbook document?

I'm not sure why, but I've always used this system:

      <title>The slide management window</title>
      <graphic fileref="../images/webswf-slide.gif"></graphic>

It worked on both HTML and PDF generation, but I used a different toolchain:
xsltproc for HTML and fop for PDF generation.

BTW the last time I did it was several months ago and I don't remember all
the details, I only remember spending *a lot* of time figuring out how to do
this task.

Hope it helps.
