Figure element in html

Hello guys,
" The figure element represents self-contained content", what is the meaning of this sentence ?

Hi @Prabhand !

Self contained means that this element is complete on its own.

For example, take a look at the sample code from MDN docs

    <img src="/media/cc0-images/elephant-660-480.jpg"
         alt="Elephant at sunset">
    <figcaption>An elephant at sunset</figcaption>

This is stand alone content that is a complete unit.

Hope that makes sense :+1:

Thank you for the explanation
