I rather not mess with that, looks very complex.

The above would be a very useful change, the class names are
acceptable to me. I hope this can become a core mod.

That's what I hope for.

A custom $ImgTagFmt is not quite enough, as far as I can see, as
any 'caption' text after a | in the Attach: markup is not passed on
(and I do not understand how PmWiki generates
</br><span>caption text...</span>
at present.
