I propose this as a placeholder:

<p>The selection of the ITS data categories applies to text nodes. In
some cases these nodes form pointers to other resources; a well-known
example is the <att>src</att> attribute on the <gi>img</gi> element in
HTML. The ITS translate and localize data categories apply to the
text of the pointer itself, not the object to which it points. Thus in
this example:
  <egXML xmlns="http://www.tei-c.org/ns/Examples">
    <p xmlns:its="http://www.w3.org/2005/11/its">As you can see in
    <img src="instructions.jpg" its:translate="yes"/>,
    the truth is not always out there.</p>
the translation information applies to the filename
"instructions.jpg", and is not an instruction to open the
graphic and change the words therein.</p>
