thanks for the prompt response

Yes, but this means that all images are dumped in the same directory
(yuck!). I'd rather have images pertinent to the article, howto, etc.,
located in the same dir with xml source for the article (it's still
far from being ideal -- any real world application almost requires the
ability to fetch images from different places _with ease_). I'm
probably asking for too much too early :), but this is now the only
real showstopper for me.

Well, even if it would it wont be too helpful -- or is it? I mean,
what I really need is the ability to say src="blah.gif", and then
Forrest will take it from the local dir. May be something like
"local:blah.gif" is feasible to implement?
