Hi Travis,

Have now added an example of what I am suggesting in the spec (as part of resolving a bug https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=9216):

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/html/master/embedded-content-0.html#captcha-images

feedback welcome!

regards
Steve

the latter:

using an image as an adjnct to a code example to aid comprehension

an example in the spec: http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/html/master/interactive-elements.html#interactive-elements

another example from the alt text doc: http://dev.w3.org/html5/alt-techniques/#sec1

Hmm. Are you asking for the HTML5 spec source to support an HTML5-introduced spec concept (i.e., use the feature in the source for the spec)? That seems a bit unusual to me... Or are you asking for a pictorial representation of a concept? (The latter sounds like an excellent suggestion, as 1 picture = 1000 words-so they say.)

Hi all,

In HTML 5.1

In cases where images are an important part of a code example, I think it would be beneficial to authors understanding of element use to add an example of the image/elements in context reflecting the current code examples.

For example, in the section on the use of the figure element [1] images could be added like they are in the alt text guidance doc [2]

thoughts?
