Graphic ::= CDATA
Both the start- and end-tags are required for this element.
This element contains graphical data, or a pointer to an external entity containing graphical data. One of the deficiencies of the DocBook Graphic element is that there is no way to specify an alternate text description of the graphic. This has been rectified by the introduction of MediaObject.
Formatted as a displayed block.
There are several ways to provide content for a Graphic. It is best to use only one of these methods. However, if multiple graphic sources are provided, the processing expectations are as follows: element content should be used in favor of either EntityRef or FileRef and EntityRef should be used in favor of FileRef.
In DocBook V4.0, Graphic will be declared EMPTY. This change will require that any embedded graphic content be stored outside the SGML source and pointed to with an EntityRef or FileRef attribute.
In DocBook V5.0, Graphic will be discarded. At that time, graphics will have to be incorporated using MediaObject or InlineMediaObject.

Align specifies the horizontal alignment of the graphic on the page or within the element that frames it.
Depth specifies the desired depth (vertical distance, at least in horizontal writing systems) of the image.
EntityRef identifies the general entity which contains (or points to) the content of the graphic.
FileRef specifies the name of the file which contains the content of the graphic.
Format identifies the format of the graphic content. The Format must be a defined notation.
Scale specifies integer representing a percentage scaling factor (retaining the relative dimensions of the original graphic). If unspecified, the value 100 (100%) is assumed.
If ScaleFit has the value 1 (true), then the graphic is to be scaled (uniformly) to the specified width or depth. The default value of 0 (false) indicates that the image will not be scaled to fit (although it may still be scaled by the Scale attribute).
SrcCredit contains details about the source of the Graphic.
Width indicates the width of the graphic.
