Thanks for the clarification. It helps, but I've still got a ways to 
go. I'm using forrest to take my documentation source files to a web 
site along with the nifty PDF files. The documentation is in 1.1.2 .sxw format.

So here's my dilemma: How do I get the images to display in, while using linked graphics from some directory? At the 
moment I specify the full path to the graphics when including them in 
OOo. I'm converting Microsoft Word files to OOo and I'd love to just 
have the embedded graphics Just Show Up(tm) in my forrest output. But 
that doesn't work (yet? :-D). So my workaround is to modify the 
properties for each graphic, and ensure they point to each graphic 
located in my medata_docs/ 'images' directory:


Are you saying that I should place the graphics here?:


Of course, to make things more difficult, I want to have the link I 
create in OOo work in the HTML output as well as the PDF (although the 
PDF output link isn't nearly as important--especially if I can get the 
PDF's image resolution upwards of 150dpi or 300dpi--a pipe dream? :-)).
