Figure Group


Wrapper element for a group of figures that are to be displayed together


One figure may contain many graphics. This grouping element is explicitly to combine more than one <fig>.

The position attribute may be used to indicate whether this element must be anchored at its exact location within the text or whether it may float, for example, to the top of the next page, into the next column, to the end of a logical file, or within a separate window.
