HTML-ISSUE-190: Replace poor coding example for figure with multiple images [HTML 5 spec]

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/190

Raised by: Steve Faulkner
On product: HTML 5 spec

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.
