I have had problems with the <img src="..." /> tag also.
I could not be bothered trawling around for a 3.2 spec., but see the [HTML 4.01 description of the img element|http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/struct/objects.html#h-13.2] for further details.
..It rendered the /> as plain text for some reason. I took out the "/>" and replaced it with </img> instead and it worked.I suggest validating the HTML against a DTD before making random changes.
(1) during preparation SSCCE I found that 'empty line' problem is not caused by anchors as I had thougt. I completely overlooked empty <p> elements there, which are ignored by common web browser, but in JavaHelp there were preserved. So I made several changes in XSLT template which produces HTML code so I avoided it.
(2) Inline images I am wrapping by hair space character U+200A. It preserves standard spaces without any other consequences (non breaking space is not ideal in every case...)
(3) I've completely rewritten css style for JavaHelp. It uses px now as units. Nasty, but it works.
(4) The same as the previous. I had to hardcode all the combinations.
There were additional issues with borders as there is not possible to use border="solid silver 1px", but three properties border-color, border-style, border-top-width.
So finally I got what I've wanted. I didn't expected it is possible.
