I had imagined that figues would be reprented as

<a name=fig1 href="fghjkdfghj"  REL="EMBED, PRESENT">Figure </a>

where the relation ship values mean

	EMBED		Embed this here when presenting it
	PRESENT		Present this whenever the source document
			is presented
Note that you can have various combinations of these, and if
the browser doesn't support either one, it doesn't break.

A see that using this as a method for selectable icons means nesting  
anchors.  Hmmm.   But I hadn't wanted a special tag.
Annother way would be to declare an entity with SYSTEM attribute  
giving the URL and then invoke that entity, but that would mean an
extendable entity dictionary which is not currently needed.
