The caption package provides many ways to customise the captions in floating 
environments like figure and table, and cooperates with many other packages. 
Includes rotating captions, sideways captions, continued captions (for tables or 
figures that come in several parts).  A list of compatibility notes, for other 
packages, is provided in the documentation.

The package also provides the "caption outside float"  facility, in the same way 
that simpler packages like capt-of do.
