Thanks Nikos.

Ah OK... Unfortunately we're in 1.0 and it seems that <code> is not available
until 1.1, which is yet another reason for us to move on.

Thanks again

Hi Mary.

It seems that <code> would be best suited for an algorithm. You can even use
@code-type attribute to qualify that it's really an algorithm.
Element <code> can reside inside a <fig>, so "Algorithm 1" can be a figure
<label> and the trailing description a <caption>.
