Subject: Re: [docbook] keeping inline images inline

Unfortunately, the current version of FOP has not implemented any of the
XSL-FO properties for vertically adjusting the inline position of a graphic.
It can
only do subscript and superscript of text.  So there is really nothing that
the stylesheet file can provide that will change it in FOP.
