An external file that holds a picture, illustration, etc., usually as some form of binary object
Conversion Note: 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 graphics. The few graphics that are really floating loose in text should be anchored there, and all the graphics inside figures, tables, etc., should be anchored as well, although the outer structure (figure, boxed-text) may be allowed to float.
Conversion Note: Display component elements, such as <caption>, should always be used at the highest possible level; in other words, if a <graphic> element is inside a <fig>, the <caption>, <long-desc>, etc. should be part of the <fig>, not part of the <graphic>. Use a <caption> element on a <graphic> only when the graphical object is not enclosed in any other structure or when a figure contains multiple graphical objects, each of which must have its own <caption>. For similar reasons, the position attribute should be set to “anchor” for a <graphic> element that is inside a larger display container such as a <fig>.
