[oXygen-user] Default folder for images

Hi Mark,

Nathan updated the forum post with more details about the references, 
they look like:

> My href looks something like this - 'href="xx/yy.png"'.

So in his case a rewrite URI should have worked:

> <rewriteURI uriStartString="xx/" rewritePrefix="file:/C:/path/to/images/"/>

Although the current Oxygen version (15.1) does not pass the relative 
image reference through the XML catalog, Oxygen 15.2 will do this so it 
is a possible solution which will work in the next Oxygen version.

But this is only for editing and rendering inside Oxygen, publishing the 
XML to some output format would still be a problem, as long as I know 
the DITA Open Toolkit engine used by Oxygen to publish DITA content does 
not pass image references through the XML catalogs, so you would still 
need valid relative references for this aspect to work properly.
