I would really like to agree with you, but I'm afraid that most people would simply ignore/overlook such link. That's why I put it directly into the article, but because of its length right at the end.

I think the example photos cover this "if this, then that" list quite well. Photos/images are often easier to understand, harder to overlook and understood even if someone doesn't speak the language.

Already seen it - thanks.
