* A series of photos/descriptions. You will not be able to not if the  
description is for the picture below or above. Sometimes this is  
conveyed by the layout. When the layout is lost it will be in some  
cases hard to associate the right image with the right description.
* Another issue is the description being really somewhere else in the  
page and not in the linear flow of the text.
