The use of graphic will be depreciated with DocBook 5.0, plus it doesn't
allow for the use of an alt tag for lack of a better term.
I'm also starting a H-H section called "DocBook Tips and Tricks" to cover
some of these funky features.
Use this as an example:
<imagedata fileref="figures/eiffeltower.eps" format="eps">
<imagedata fileref="figures/eiffeltower.gif" format="gif">
<phrase>The Eiffel Tower</phrase>
<para>Designed by Gustave Eiffel in 1889, The Eiffel Tower is one of
the most widely recognized buildings in the world.
I have been having some trouble getting db2pdf to work, but somehow by hand
I could generate TeX then PS, then PDF. This was late in the evening,
so I'll look at it some more tomorrow.
