Nice to hear that. I wouldn't consider data: URIs to be easy (getting 
the GIF encoded is usually the hardest part as you cannot do that with 
straight XSLT), but if it works for you that's good ;)

Note that not all XSL-FO processors will support the data: scheme (but 
that can actually be true for just about any scheme, though currently 
http and file are supported by all of them) as it is much less common 
than http: and file:.
