   Oh, sure, Christof... *make* me go look everything up. :)  I didn't
mean to say that you couldn't put an external-graphic in an s-p-s
header.  What I was getting at is that the header might not be allowed
to have displayed objects.  Indeed, the DSSSL spec requires that the
header consist of purely inline objects.
   Thus, the specification of display?: #t in Hans' example would
cause a problem.  In fact, I'm surprised Jade didn't issue an error
about it.  In any case, changing the value of display? to #f (or
omitting it altogether, as #f is the default) will cause the graphic
to be created as an inline object, which is allowed in a header.
