Hi list,

a feature which I miss in org-mode is the possibility to add captions
to a table or a image. I use org-mode to prepare technical documents,
currently mostly to export to HTML. It would be very nice to have
usual technical writing style here as well. It would also be very
helpful for LaTeX where you hardly have any image or table w/o caption
(at least I didn't have it).

Proposal would be to introduce an optional special comment to give a
caption, e.g.:
| ...
|---------+-------------+-------+-------|
#+TBLCAP: This table expresses my wish to have a caption.

[[file:org-mode.png]]
#+IMGCAP: Org-mode logo.

Deplate for example has something similar for tables, see
http://deplate.sourceforge.net/Markup.html#tables.

Did you consider this already?

Cheers,
Daniel

Would it be possible just to have a generic

#+CAPTION: Description goes here

instead that applies to anything that can have a caption?  This way you
don't need to remember exactly which caption tag you need to use for
each of the things with a caption.

Just my 2 cents.

This is also ok for me. Actually I don't care, whatever is easier to
implement (and I thought if you have to care about the fact if this
special comment is valid at this position, it may be easier to have
destinct names).

Cheers,
Daniel

HTML does not really have a natural way to add a caption to an image
or a table (as far as I know, that is).  What structural element
would you propose?

I do like the idea to add captions, but I will probably only get
around to that when after fixing a few bugs in the LaTeX exporter,
for which captions are even more interesting.

Tables are easy.

<table> blah
<caption> the caption goes here </caption>
<tr> 
...
</tr>
</table>

For images you can do it with CSS

WOW, just saw that CAPTION support has been added recently! Will try
it out soon!

Great thanks!
