Scribus has the capability of inline images; you can cut an image frame,
edit mode and paste the image into the textframe. You can also paste other
(graphics or even other textfraames).
Unfortunately there are some limitations:
* you can't edit the inlined frame
* if you copy/paste the containing textframe, all inline frames are lost
In the future these limitations will be fixed; and there will probably also
on how the inline frame is anchored (e.g. for margin notes).
So for the time I would advice you to stick with OpenOffice.
