Exemplary material


The figure element is used to group an illustration together with a caption or other exemplary or explanatory material.

The illustration may be a picture, chart, diagram, formula, computer code, poem, or other such work of art.

The figure element is analagous to an "aside" element for visual media or exemplary material.

Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
