images in seperators

Is it possible to use the <$img> tag in a separator? I tried sticking one in and I just got the text of the tag repeated, so I’m guessing no. This would be very useful. I’m trying to create graphic separators.

Although, for this to work in a usable manner, the kindle/epub outputs would need to store the image only once and link to it repeatedly so as not to bloat the file. I’ve done this manually in ebooks exported to HTML, marked up, then run through kindlegen/calibre.


That does feel like a natural place to use it. I’ve added it to the list of things to suggest to Keith when he gets back.

Done for 2.4.
