suggest adding ARIA-fied example (from html5 spec)

<figure role="img" aria-labelledby="fish-caption"
   <pre>
   o           .'`/
     '      /  (
   O    .-'` ` `'-._      .')
      _/ (o)        '.  .' /
      )       )))     ><  <
      `\  |_\      _.'  '. \
        '-._  _ .-'       '.)
    jgs     `\__\
   </pre>
   <figcaption id="fish-caption">
    <cite>Joan G. Stark, "fish"</cite>.
    October 1997. ASCII on electrons. 28×8.
   </figcaption>
   </figure>

Also question the use of <abbr> in this technique:

<abbr title="Austin Rocks">Au5t1N r0xx0rz</abbr>
