Juan, as you can see in this thread, Brolin has explained
that you can use xi:include and Thorsten has mentioned
some other techniques.

There is another option: Use "ASCII Art" to automatically
generate an image from text.

Add a file xdocs/text.aart

Add an image link to your xdoc source:
   Text: <img src="text.png" alt="image"/>

It would only be suitable for small snippets of text,
but this technique might be useful in some circumstances.
