w-elements

figure can be used to associate a caption together with some embedded
content, such as a graphic or video:

<figure>
 <video src=ogg>Š</video>
 <legend>Example</legend>
</figure>

<figure>
 <legend>A lengthy description of the following table. If this messes up the

by screenreaders (I think)</legend>
<table> 
    ...
</table>
</figure>
