Oops. I misunderstood which part of my message was being referred to.

"something else" in the last sentence could be:
  * Merely juxtaposed text that restates whatever it is the image  
  * Juxtaposed text associated with aria-describedby.
  * Link to a different page phrased as a "more information" link for  
all audiences as opposed to a [D]-link.
  * <object> element with HTML fallback content.
