Subject: RE: DOCBOOK: layout of mediaobjects (images)

I tried <informalfigure/>, the following:

        <tgroup cols="3">
                    <imagedata fileref="images/at_work_icon.gif"
                        <imagedata fileref="images/acopdflogo2.gif"
                    </inlinemediaobject></medialabel> </ulink></entry>
                        <imagedata fileref="images/adobe1.gif"
                    </inlinemediaobject></medialabel> </ulink></entry>

In HTML, the first is displayed, then the 2nd and 3rd are displayed on the
following line.  Thus, I went back to the <informaltable/>.  One interesting
thing is that is the spaces are not included between the:

</medialabel> </ulink>

end tags, the image does not display, only the URL in text.

[Follow-ups to docbook-apps, please]

/ Stefan Seefeld <seefeld@sympatico.ca> was heard to say:
| is there a way to specify a layout for images in a docbook document ?
| Specifically, it appears that mediaobjects are always placed one above
| the other. Is there a way to somehow visually group them, such that
| having a hbox with images (for example) ?

Putting the images in a <figure> (or <informalfigure>) should serve to
group them. Getting the visual rendering that you want may require some
stylesheet customization. What tools are you using to publish? And are
you publishing to HTML or print?
