RE: How do I give figure captions in Amaya?

Is this really an Amaya issue?

There are hundreds of ways to give a figure a caption in HTML and CSS.  It is up to you how to choose to do it.  Keith's method will work but it is absolutely not the only way or even the "right" way - there is no one right way... there are hundreds.

If Amaya does not support creating valid HTML then that's a bug.  If you can't figure out how to produce some valid HTML in Amaya then that's a good Amaya question.  

I'm not sure there's a lot of value to turning the list into an HTML how to forum though.

Insert a 1x1 table (one row, one column), and be sure to check the "With 
caption" box. Insert the image into the table. The table will contain a 
caption (default is empty) above the table cell. Position the cursor in 
the empty caption and enter the desired caption text. The default 
caption position is top (above the table). You can select the caption 
and insert an "align" attribute. Then select the attribute value from 
the list to position the caption top, bottom, right or left of the table.

Note: Amaya does not properly display right or left aligned captions, 
but other browsers do. Personally, I would stick with top or bottom, 
which is where most captions want to be. Set the table border width to 
zero so all you see is the image and the caption text.
