No, I'm happy with the formal one: We make heavy use of PDF
output and this seems to be the only place that works.

I am always confused where to put the images: the resources
folder seems the right place to me but the forrest docs
mention the "old" location:

The question here was rather on how to address images from (extra)
CSS since the URLs there don't get resolved like in XML source.
Since the absolute path works, I'm fine.
