Greetings Shane, I'm not sure what you intend when you say "we could use 
that as well". I would like to be sure that we can continue to use caption 
with table.

Regards, Roland

Re: XHTML2: caption element in object and table modules




I think that label (as defined in the list module) is similar, and we 
could use that as well.  I did not realize that label collided with the 
label element in xforms.  That's a bummer.
