Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] inlinemediaobject + caption for epubs?

I would suggest that an informalfigure element with a floatstyle="right" attribute 
would be more appropriate for wrapping the text flow around the figure.  You could add 
a caption element to the mediaobject element inside the informalfigure.  I haven't 
tried it with epub, but it works in XHTML.
