This is a good question. Apparently both. It originally sets the image by 
the position (char n of field x). However, once set, it isn't specific to 
that position anymore. IOW, if you add a character before char n, the 
image doesn't move back one position. It stays with the character you set 
it to. In addition, you can cut and paste the character which references 
the image and it moves where you paste it. The new image/character 
combination becomes its own entity.

Also to make this a bit confusing, <CR> characters are counted when you 
specify a character position.
