figgroup

Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) Version 1.2

The <figgroup> element is used primarily for specialization, in order to create segments within a figure. The element may nest itself, which allows it to create complex specialized structures (such as the nestable groups of syntax within a syntax diagram). Figure groups can be used to contain multiple cross-references, footnotes or keywords, but not multipart images. Multipart images in DITA should be represented by a suitable media type displayed by the <object> element.
