I'm having trouble getting images to appear within a Paragraph when I use the <img/> tag:

1 from reportlab.lib.styles import ParagraphStyle
2 from reportlab.pdfgen.canvas import Canvas
3 from reportlab.platypus import Paragraph, Frame
5 c = Canvas('test.pdf')
6 f = Frame(100, 700, 400, 100, showBoundary=True)
7 f.addFromList([Paragraph('This is a test image: <img src="test.gif" height="5"/>. That was a test.', ParagraphStyle(None))], c)
8 c.save()

Where test.gif is created with the following ImageMagick command:

echo this is a test | convert -background yellow -page 200x50 text:- test.gif

The image will not display. What am I missing?
