Last time I checked, XML was, from the start and all by 
itself, capable of referencing images:

<!DOCTYPE doc [
<!NOTATION image-type SYSTEM "image-type-definition">
<!ENTITY some-image SYSTEM "image-location" NDATA 
image-type>
<!ELEMENT doc (#PCDATA)>
]>
<doc>&some-image;</doc>

Whether and how the image displays is left to the application.  I 
do not see why CSS would affect that.
