Identifies the type of figure being displayed, for example, a cartoon, chart, diagram, drawing, exhibit, illustration, map, plate, schema, workflow, etc.
Many journal tag sets make a distinction between different types of graphical objects (some by means of attributes, others with distinct elements). In this Tag Set, all these figure types will be tagged using the <fig> element. The distinctions between different types of figures can be preserved using the @fig-type attribute, e.g., by recording the content type of the figure, such as “map”.
|Text, numbers, or special characters||The type of object shown in the figure, for example, “diagram”, “chart”, or “map”|
|Restriction: This attribute may be specified if the element is used.|
