Easiest way is to keep al xml stuff in one directory and have one 
subdirectory for images. 

But sometimes more directories are needed (imagine setting write 
permissions on a per directory base with CVS). 

In this case you have to take care of fileref attributes. In my case 
i use XINCLUDE to include small pieces in many different sections. If 
this included xml has a filref and belongs to onother directory than 
the including one, the resulting "src" attribute of an "img" element  
(speaking of HTML output) might be broken. You will need a 
customization layer which transforms the fileref attribute 
(graphics/imagedata...) in respect of xml:base.

i use the second approach very often and a customization layer to 
"fix" the filerefs.
kind regards,
