[Wikipedia-l] Image text.

On the topic of transferring Wikipedia content to other media - is there a way
of giving pictures descriptions in the context of an article? Since a picture
can be used in several articles, the descriptions have to be part of each
article (since what it represents might vary from context to context).

Ideally, I'm looking for both an "alt"-text (to represent the picture when it's
not possible to display it, like "a map of Germany") as well as a subtext,
"Fig. 2. This diagram plots the growth of Wikipedia."

Is this possible to do with the [Image:] tag?
