The "applet" I meant is Modes.StrongHTML.Tools.!HTMLimg -- and 
unfortunately its runimage is filetype Absolute.

The "image" applet is invoked by a button above the StrongEd window 
when StrongHTML mode is in use.  It produces a little dialogue with a 
dropzone for the graphic file you want to insert into the web page.  
The dropzone very usefully:
 - handles Jpeg and PNG and Gif, and I presume the usual other 
graphics filetypes too
 - converts RiscOS pathname format to Unix format
 - gives a *relative* version of the pathname, suiting where the 
graphic and the target HTML live in the filesystem
 - extracts width and height figures of the graphic.

The dialogue also has fields where the user specifies border, Hspace 
and Vspace but I wouldn't need these when using CSS.

Meanwhile I could experiment with the Modefile's shortcuts as Richard 
suggests.  But won't do anything for the next week.
