Or with inline graphics as Joe Hildebrand suggested (I've added the ellipsis. It's originally very long):

          <figure id='nit-flow'>
            <img src='data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgA...YII=' alt='A description of the diagram' width='236' height='176' />
            <figcaption><a class='self-ref' href='#nit-flow'>Figure 1.</a> Possible workflow for processing HTML RFCs</figcaption>
          </figure>
