In html, an absolute path won't work for anyone who's not using your computer.

You need a trailing slash after images. Docbook just concatenates
strings so it won't add one for you.

Same again:

'/images' + '../my_image.jpg' = '/images../my_image.jpg'

Are you looking at the paths in your browser? You need to look at the
html, the browser is resolving the paths for you so you're missing how
docbook is generating the paths e.g. if it generates
"images/../my_image.jpg", you're seeing "my_image.jpg". That's
probably why there's no 'images' in your path.

But this is getting nowhere, I need to see your Jamfile and quickbook
to see what you're doing.
