:) It's just alot easier. I say let's support it easy, then if it ever
becomes priority, we can add more complex / efficient storage of images.
And besides, I just added image support. Here's how it works...
Make the src of your image look like this <img src="/pic.jpg"> or if
you prefer, <img src="/images/pic.jpg>
the src MUST begin with a '/', otherwise, the filter assumes you know
what you're doing (possibly referencing an external source somewhere)
and leaves the tag unchanged.
The thmlhtml and thmlhtmlhref filters now use a few new mechanisms to
prepend the module datapath to the beginnings of all these tags. These
images should then be located in the module relative to their DataPath=
entry in the config file. Let me know if it works.
