Section 3.11 Figures and Tables¶
Figures and tables have outer structures,
<table> which can contain a
<title> (for cross-references, such as in a list of figures) and a
<caption>. The presence of a
<caption> generates a number for the figure or table. These outer structures also generate some vertical separation between surrounding elements.
<table> may only contain a
<tabular>, which is the structure containing the rows and columns of a table. Details can be found in Section 6.12.
<figure> is more liberal than a
<table> and may contain a variety of items. Most probably, you will include an
<image> (see Section 3.6).
