Ah, I see what you mean now. The rendering code for this file input field is
deep into the z3 internals, and at this point I have to say "it would be
nice, but I don't know where to look".

I've added these two as well as allowing absolute urls for the 'edit link

need to think about how to implement them a bit.
BTW, I have added the fancy lookup/edit buttons to the image tool in the Silva
Regarding the ISO sorting, that's good too, but I'll let someone else from
