Any href of "images/..." maps to src/documentation/resources/images 
(this is used for images common to many pages).  PDF image inclusion is 
not very flexible so it choses to load images from the resources 
directory rather than a relative "images" directory.  HTML generation 
looks in both directories it seems.
