   Image and label placement

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Many printed textbooks contain a construct that consists of an
illustration with a caption and several textual labels printed within
the boundaries of the image.  For example, imagine a picture of the
human digestive system, with the key organs labeled with their name.

The XML for such a construct might look something like this:
  <figure number="1">
    <image src="organs.tif" hsize="6.0" vsize="4.0"/>
    <label xpos="2.0" ypos="1.0">
    <label xpos="2.0" ypos="2.0">
    <label xpos="1.5" ypos="2.5">
    <label xpos="2.0" ypos="3.5">
      The human digestive system consists of several key organs.

There are other devices that could also be used to annotate the
illustration, such as callout lines or arrows, balloon text, a key or
a legend.

Is anybody aware of a standard or proposed DTD or schema that
specifies the content model for this or similar constructs?
