|Graphics and figures|
Simple tables can be contained within figures instead of, or in addition to, images.
Figures will normally contain images or other forms of graphical illustration. However, they can also contain text-based objects such as simple tables (simpletable elements), definition lists (dl elements), code blocks (codeblock elements), message blocks (msgblock elements), and long quotations (lq elements).
As a simple table can itself contain images, it is also possible to use the simpletable structure to create figures comprising multiple images and text fragments, such as a collection of images along with supporting explanatory text.
