(I am aware this is almost hopelessly esoteric. I’ll say as a hint that p.m.o readers stand a far better-than-average chance of understanding this; the subset of those readers who are active web developers have an even better chance yet; and the subset of those who have been active since, oh, 19:13 PST today have the best chance of all. If you don’t get it [and who would blame you? :-) ], I’ll explain fully in the first comment.)

  1. HTML5 recently changed the markup to be used for marking up figure/caption combinations (such as those you might see in, well, a blog like this one) to be a figure element with a figcaption element as either the first or last child (or absent if there is no caption). I’m using HTML5 markup to put the image/caption into a figure with the self-referential “figcaption” as the caption (inside a figcaption element), also punning upon the contents of the image — a fig.

  2. Very nice, ever so geeky. :) I thought I knew all the new html5 tags, but apparently not.

  3. As the post obliquely noted (also noted at the site linked to in the first comment), this change occurred just yesterday evening, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that you didn’t know it!
