For floating figures, it seems useful to put the figure element inside a <p>:

<p><figure style="float:
right;"><img><figcaption>Text</figcaption></figure>Lorem ipsum.

Now it seems that the spec specifically changes legacy behavior to make this
not work. Please make <figure> and <figcaption> not close <p>.
