Reply to: How to add table caption?

To answer the question about enabling the Insert Caption option in the Insert Table menu. That option is only available when the current DTD uses the HTML table model for tables. There is no equivalent Insert Title option when CALS tables are being used because the underlying system (XMetaL Author) upon which the DITA functionality sits assumes that if is desired it will be automatically inserted by the people that created that customization. When the DITA functionality (which is a customization) was implemented this feature was left out (by mistake I suspect).</p> <p>So, as answered in my previous post, I will ask that we add this functionality, and until then the simplest option is to use the workaround (also described in my previous post).
