adapters, Can someone tell me is there anyway I can display the images side-by-side, I had try the fosi, but it doesn't seem to kept my image together. Julie T.

I haven't tried setting up two graphics like this, but I think side-by-side is the key. Try looking into the archives for "algroup" and you should generate many hits.
You could try setting up your data something like this: <wrapper> <graphic> <graphic> </wrapper>
If you set the each graphic element-in-context, context of wrapper and paying attention to occurrence(first and notfirst), to side-by-side. Set align to top and define necessary column widths using indent for each e-i-c and you should be able to get it with some trial and error.
We've got a similar construct for procedures that looks sorta like: <procedure> <graphic> <orderedlist> </procedure>
Our model aligns the graphic and the ordered list at the top and side-by-side works okay. The graphic is set to scale to fit its defined algroup column.
Note that graphic elements have no content as they are file or entity references essentially. This aspect can present difficulty for side-by-side alignment.
Hope this helps, Jason

Julie- You could place the graphics in columns. I have used this on my projects. You can tell the graphics to use the two column layout and the text to use a one layout. This might be something to try.
You did not tell us if you neet it for Editor or composed view.
For Editor view you must use a two columns table and put each graphic/caption in a cell.
For composed view there are, at least, 3 solutions: 1) use algroup 2) use a two columns page layout 3) use a table
In all cases and depending on your data structure you will have to write tricky ACL code or (this is always my advise in case of batch formatting) preprocess your source to transform it to a structure that is suitable to your layout requirement (you could use XSLT, OmniMark, ACL, Perl, Python ...).
Be aware that, using a FOSI, it is very rare that a storage/exchange structure is suitable to a complex formatting output spec.

I need to have my graphic to display side by side in Editor view, I can create a XSL stylesheet to solve my compose view. I know table can slove the problem, but base on our DTD, table are not valid at the point. when insert graphic first time, it had to be in the center, then if there is a second one or third graphic, then they have to be display side by side in the center and their title is right below to each of the graphic. I had try the column, it kinder working but maybe I still doing something wrong in the FOSI. Thanks for you all's info.
There is only a subset of FOSI characteristics that are supported in Edit window.
It is not possible to display element side-by-side without using a table because multicolumn page layout and algroup, among others, are not supported for screen FOSI.
I can't remember where to find the compatibility table in the online help.

I think this reference is to the topic "Formatting support tables - overview". This is in the online help at FOSIs|features available in|summary. Or if you have a command line up, type "help 5869" as this is the help topic number. If you have a topic up in online help on Windows, you can figure out the help topic number by doing a view source in the help viewer which will show you the HTML source for the topic. The first tag after the will have a name like "helpXXXX" where XXXX is the help topic number. Of course if yo...
Ed, it's 11PM on Saturday and I'm partying again :).
Now to the issue at hand. In the e-i-c for your graphic, make sure you don't have a textbrk with a start or endline set to 1. Also depending on the attributes you have available for your graphic, you may be able to specify the location for the graphic.
In the FOSI, you can (depending on the size of the graphic) specify location for the first, last and other graphics.
On the down side, I've been trying to get a good "fix" on multiple graphics in a line. Sometimes the FOSI works and other times it doesn't.
Here are a couple of examples to look at. These are for the graphic and not the caption, etc.
This works for both the output on screen and paper. The screen display may be limited (as pointed out in another response, but depending on screen availablity FOSI settings and graphic sizes you can have the graphics appear side by side.
Hope this helps a bit.
