Description Larry O'Brien 2013-01-09 15:15:57 UTC
Embedded imagery does not work on native Mac browser. 

The <img href="foo.png"/> tag is supposed to load the image "./_images/foo.png" per http://www.mono-project.com/Monodoc_Editing

This works in the Web: http://docs.go-mono.com/?link=T%3aMonoTouch.CoreImage.CIAdditionCompositing  but not in the native browser. 

I have tried several variations of the tag:

   <para>Href as specified: <img href="MonoTouch.UIKit.UICollectionView.Components.png"/></para>
   <para>Pathed href: <img href="_images/MonoTouch.UIKit.UICollectionView.Components.png"/></para>
   <para>Local src: <img src="MonoTouch.UIKit.UICollectionView.Components.png"/></para>
   <para>Pathed src: <img src="_images/MonoTouch.UIKit.UICollectionView.Components.png"/></para>
   <para>Web src: <img src="https://www.google.com/images/srpr/logo3w.png"/></para>

Web src *does* load (src="http://etc...") 

I unarchived the compiled Monotouch-lib file and do not see a ./_images directory nor any files that match the size of the referenced images.
