If you want to keep this link hidden from people and just use it as a  
signal to parsers (e.g. because your metadata is marked up in RDF/ 
XML), RDFa is probably your best bet.  But if you're making it open to  
people, you can do this with existing microformats, e.g.:

<div class="figure">
	<img class="image" src="http://someurl/photo_of_cow.jpg" alt="a cow" />
	<p class="legend"><a href="http://someurl/ 
meta_data_about_photo_of_cow" rel="help">more about this image</a></p>
