I hope that the "disgusting" refers to the use of 'img' and 'src' and the
implied semantics rather than the mechanism :-).  I am an advocate of the
*mechanism* (e.g where I
use XML-LINK explicitly to combine chemistry, maths and text. This has the
advantage that it avoids namespace problems. It also allows me to process
foreign files if certain assumptions are made.
