Description

An acknowledgment of the source of integrated content from third-party sources, such as photos. Typically identifies the creator, copyright and any restrictions on reuse.

Examples

Example 1 — Image credit
<figure>
   <img src="bandersnatch.jpg" alt="The Bandersnatch" />
   <figcaption>
      …
      <p role="doc-credit">Image courtesy of …</p>
   </figcaption>
</figure>

Relation to ARIA

doc-credit inherits its semantics from the a section role (i.e., it represents a container of related content, but is not a landmark).

Usage

doc-credit is typically used on p and div elements, depending on whether the credit is a single paragraph or consists of multiple paragraphs. It is not recommended to identify individual credits when they are contained within a section of credits, as the purpose of the section already makes clear the contents.
