Here's one way to do it. I wanted the images to be placed within the
flow of the text and also include a caption. I chose <table> since it
is a much more exacting way to constrain the image and caption together.
This leaves no question as to the interpretation of the parts that go
together. As an enhancement, I map the "altrender" attribute to the
"style" attribute in HTML. This allows me additional control over
positioning, fonts, etc. using CSS styles. Two finding aids that use a
similar or variation of this technique:
<table altrender="float: right;">
<extptr href="http://www.yourdomain.com/image.jpg" show="embed"
actuate="onload" role="image/jpeg" />
<entry altrender="font-size: 8pt;">This is the image caption</entry>
<table style="float: right;">
<tr><td style="font-size: 8pt;">This is the image caption</td></tr>
