Maybe I am not clear. What I want is something like this:
Bla Bla <img src=whatever.jpg width=50%/> bla bla.
being the same as
Bla Bla <img src=whatever.jpg width=100/> bla bla.
in a frame that's 200pt wide.
As I said, I have it working for images as a separate flowable, it's just with
images inline on paragraph xml markup that I can't figure it out.
