More seriously, how do you want to do it?  You could actually dump a
base64-encoded copy of the image right into the XML, you could
reference an image externally, or you could add the image using XSL.
With XPointer, you can even point to an IMG element in an HTML

Of course, you'll need software that understands what you're doing,
but as far as XML is concerned all of the solutions are valid.

All the best,
