A DG is a collection of groups. Anything that can be put into a group 
can be part of the group that defines the row.

"Embed"? Never.  But we can display an image in a field.

It works very much like HTML, where you can reference an image object by 
ID to have it show up in a field:

   set the imageSource of char 13 of fld 1 to tSomeImgID

HtmlText for that would show something like:

   <p>Hello World <img src="4444"></p>
