Subject Re: Cocoon problems generating html output
Date Wed, 04 Jun 2003 10:44:15 GMT
Thanks Joerg,

Unfortunately we are directly publishing the source XML from CVS,
therefore we can guarantee that the images are in the same place
relative to the source document but we cannot guarantee the absolute
path.

Are there any workarounds until this is fixed that you know of..?
