:Resolution:It might useful to create an [[example(s)]] of this behaviour, along with alternative approaches. One option is to turn the long sentence caption into a shorter caption, followed by a paragraph, followed by a break-and-clear ([=[[<<]]=]). There is an example at Examples/BreakFloat. Wikipublisher basically follows the author's instructions; it sounds as if it may need to provide a way for an author to specify, "Float this figure in `HTML but not in `PDF."

Added lines 1-21:
:Summary:long captions displayed in the margin next to floated figures look terrible

:Type:Bug

:Raised by:[[~tyrel]]

:Date opened:2007-10-27

:Description:If you float a figure to the left/right that has a long caption (i.e. about a sentence in length), the printing of the long caption in the margin is terrible looking and pretty much useless. I understand the reasoning of putting the caption in the margin for left/right floated figures, but for ones with longer captions, the only option is display the figure inline with the text.

:Importance:4

:Proposed solution:Longer captions should be displayed under figures that are floated left/right.

:Urgency:1

:Status:Open

:Resolution:
