What is it?

<figure> is any kind of graphic illustration. We mostly use it to encode the doodles and diagrams that can be found in the manuscripts. In some cases, when a <metamark> is a graphic image that cannot be reduced to a (string of) character(s), it can also be used inside a <metamark> tag.


The <figure> tag can have four attributes: @corresp, @xml:id, @n, and @type. To find out which attributes can be used in which circumstances (and which are required or optional in which cases), please refer to individual encoding instructions of doodlesdiagrams, and <metamark>.
