I have never even heard of a FIG tag. I did some searching at it appears to be a part of the first draft of HTML3. I saw some notes that it was deprecated in place of MAP and AREA elements, but was not able to find anything about this on the W3's web site.

Every piece of information I find on this tag goes back to 1995 or 1996, I can not find anything more recent.

I think you are out of luck on this one.

I think you might want to try using MAP and AREA. You might also want to supply and example of exactly what you are trying to achomplish (pictorally maybe) and we could probabally help better.

Yeh i thought it seemed old, i was really just interested in the <CAPTION> options that you could use with it. Its ok tho was just curious, im just floating my gallery boxes with css so they can stack next to eachother etc.

My only concern was that i remeber reading something about float not having great support, but i must be wrong it seems to be working fine in most browsers.

Thanks anyhow
