Subject: No IMG in FIG

Benjamin's home page problem is that he has included an IMG in an
A inside a FIG.  This is not allowed in Dave's HTML 3.0 proposal's
content model for FIG:

<!ELEMENT FIG - - (OVERLAY*, CAPTION?, FIGTEXT, CREDIT?) -(FIG|IMG)>

The reasoning is presumably that the FIGTEXT is to be displayed only
if the browser can't handle FIG; it is expected that a browser
can't handle FIG if if can't display images, therefore it wouldn't
be able to display an IMG either.
