An external file that holds a media object, such as an animation or a movie
Although, in theory, the position attribute of this element may be used to indicate whether this element must be anchored at its exact location within the text or whether it may float, it is usually good practice to anchor media objects. For media objects inside figures, tables, etc., the object should be anchored, although the outer structure (figure, boxed-text) may be allowed to float.
Display component elements, such as <alt-text>, should always be used at the highest possible level; in other words, if a <media> element is inside a <fig>, the <alt-text>, <long-desc>, <attrib>, etc., should be part of the <fig>, not part of the <media>. Use a <alt-text> (or similar display component elements) on a <media> only when the media object is not enclosed in any other structure or when a figure contains multiple media objects, each of which must have its own <alt-text>. For similar reasons, the position attribute should be set to “anchor” for a <media> element that is inside a larger display container such as a <fig>.
