The `geometry does not contain image' message tells that the bounding
box of the page does not contain a visible content.  I was able to get
the message for a PS file and get proper showing for an EPS file.

The file File.idv should be just a regular dvi file, with one picture
per page.  Its content can be reviewed by renaming the file to
foo.dvi. Each picture in File.idv should come from a File.dvi page,
with the non-pictorial content of the page being cleaned away.

I'm confused.  Can I get the picture Image.foo that shows fine in gv
when the attached file is compiled with `latex + dvips' and fails to
be processed under tex4ht.

          \put(100,18){\includegraphics*[height=80mm,bb=0 0 328 406]{Image}}
