OK. This now is leaving the Charmer realm, and we are entering the
apache zone... 
As things look to me, you move your images to something like:


Assuming that Charmer-0.2b resides in


and you can access the directory in which Charmer-0.2b resides by


should be the beginning of your URLs (instead of
file:/home/martin/daten/htdocs/images). You will do a query-replace on
your data.

Yes, and we get this solved, and afterwards I will paste things in the
gift-guide.sgml from which gift-guide.txt is generated.

BTW: If you take the standard way of putting files in ~/public_html
everything we are writing about works automatically: the gift
generates http:// urls for files that reside in ~/public_html. 

What we are working out here, is how to do things once you are doing
things in a non-default way. This is extremely useful and it surely
will find it's way into the doc :-)

mk> thanks a lot for helping

Thanks a lot for trying :-)
