I've done some testing, here are my results:
- when an image is loaded, it's text property is not set; when it is
imported, it is.
- when the text property of an image is changed, the imageData,
width, height etc also change.
So now I can use the binary data from the Word XML file, decode
them, create a new, empty image on the card and set the text of that
image to the decoded binary data.
