Subject: Best way to represent an image placeholder?


We're currently using DocBook 5.0 to markup copies of some
historical printed publications.

These publications can be quite complex and often contain
diagrams, maps, charts and figures etc.

We don't currently have images for these page graphics but
I'd still like the markup to contain some kind of "placeholder"
that indicates a missing image.

My tests with <imageobject> and <imagedata> show I could
use a dummy "fileref" attribute, but that doesn't seem

Can someone suggest a better approach?  Should I be using
a processing instruction or some kind of parenthetical

Any advice much appreciated,
