Caveat: I don't "do" OSIS, but I am the guy mostly in charge of Xiphos.

Xiphos fairly blindly takes whatever came out of the engine and drops it
into the subwindow pane to show the text.  Whatever linkage came out of
the engine is what Xiphos gives to the user.  BibleTime has somewhat
different OSIS->HTML filters; it is possible that its result for
conversion to use in its HTML widgets is not the same.  This might be a
BT bug.

The only constraint for successful display in Xiphos is that the images
are placed in proper relative position in the directory structure.  By
convention this uses a subdirectory "images" in which the files are
contained, and they are referenced from the text as src="/images/xyz.jpg".
