Figures, Pictures and Images

Because most of the texts in VWW will not include images, you need to mark figures, charts, images and other matter within the text so that the reader understands where they fall in the text and what they look like. All of these things are marked using the same tag, <figure>. A figure will include to sub-elements, <figDesc>, or figure description, and <head>. The <head> and <figDesc> tags can be listed in any order. In other words, <head> can come before or after <figDesc>. The figure <head> contains the title caption listed in the text. If there is no caption, you do not use the <head> tag. The <figDesc> is the element used to denote a summary of the image and what is featured in it. Remember, this tag will be used to indicate to the reader what the image looks like and how it appears bibliographically. Be as detailed and specific as possible, without writing too much.

Lists

Lists are ordered, itemized information. They can have headings, <head>, but need not have headings. They can come within paragraphs,<p>, and divisions, <div>, but need not. Lists can include many types of information, including images and charts, <figure>, and financial information. Lists can also come within lists. So for instance, sublists in a larger list can be marked. This is done by putting the list, figure or other tag within the list <item>.
