Even though they could be inlined, using data: links.

For example, a SVG image, data: encoded, could be rendered inline by a smart client:

=> data:image/svg+xml;%3Csvg%20height%3D%22100%22%20width%3D%22100%22%3E%3Ccircle%20cx%3D%2250%22%20cy%3D%2250%22%20r%3D%2240%22%20stroke%3D%22black%22%20stroke-width%3D%223%22%20fill%3D%22red%22%2F%3E%3C%2Fsvg%3E image caption

Same, but base64 encoded:

=> data:image/svg+xml;base64,PHN2ZyBoZWlnaHQ9IjEwMCIgd2lkdGg9IjEwMCI+PGNpcmNsZSBjeD0iNTAiIGN5PSI1MCIgcj0iNDAiIHN0cm9rZT0iYmxhY2siIHN0cm9rZS13aWR0aD0iMyIgZmlsbD0icmVkIi8+PC9zdmc+ image caption
