In
http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-html5-20121025/the-img-element.html#general-guidelines

The following example is non conforming the title attribute cannot be used to
provide a caption in the instance:

"Here it is not known at the time of publication what the image will be, only
that it will be a coat of arms of some kind, and thus no replacement text can
be provided, and instead only a brief caption for the image is provided, in the
title attribute:

<p>The last user to have uploaded a coat of arms uploaded this one:</p>
<p><img src="last-uploaded-coat-of-arms.cgi" title="User-uploaded coat of
arms."></p>"

suggest changing example to:

<figure>
<img src="last-uploaded-coat-of-arms.cgi">
<figcaption>User uploaded coat of arms.</figcaption>
</figure>
