Format non-captioned image for TOC inclusion? Using Mobipocket?

Hi, gang:

My latest question--has anyone here found a satisfactory method, using Mobipocket's automated TOC generator, of being able to identify and include non-captioned images (jpgs) in the TOC? I've tried everything I could think of, from using Header titles to trying to see if I could use the name attribute for an anchor to get a TOC pointer in the TOC [i]without[/i] having to create actual TEXT, like a caption, around which to wrap the tags. (I mostly hate this because the images are full-screen sized, so that the "captions" appear on the next "page," so to speak, so that if a reader points to them out of the TOC, they get the bloody caption without any clue what on earth they are [i]supposed[/i] to be looking at, if you see my meaning....with a pagebreak immedately afterwards, because the images precede new Chapters...so a nice floaty, meaningless caption. [i]Lovely[/i]).

I know I could manually edit the TOC.html and include these, by creating anchor tags and manually coding the links, but obviously if you make future changes to the text, and need to update the TOC, you're hosed.

Any clever little devils around here that have figured this out and want to share?

TIA,

Hitch
