the figure element section
http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/grouping-content.html#the-figure-element contains
an example where a figure contains multiple related images. The caption text
for each of the images is contained in the img element title attribute. This
example promotes an anti-pattern that reduces the accessibility of the content. 

recommend replacing the example with an example using nested figure elements:

Refer to http://www.html5accessibility.com/tests/figures-nested.html for
further details and alternative example code.
