Actually, I am building an automatically-generate LOF from the book file.
In the set up, I designate the tag zzFigureTitle as the paragraph tag to
be included. I don't know how to explain other than to say zzFigureTitle
is actually a paragraph tag within a paragraph tag. For example, I will
use a Body paragraph tag that has text and then I will insert the marker
for the graphic - which is an anchored frame within a single cell table
and I have set the title to be after the "table." The title has been
assigned the zzFigureTitle paragraph tag. Is that clear?
I did think about your recommendation because I remember Bernard Ashwaden
making a similar recommendation to handle the problem of having
tables/figures that start on a new page and needing to find a way to
eliminate the spacing issue.
Since I sent out this question, I have received a few other
recommendations. Each one has its advantages and disadvantages
Thanks for your help,

It sounds like the second (because the first method wouldn't involve
any cross-refs) ... and if that's the case, you're creating a sort of
a nested hierarchy starting with the paragraph, then the anchor point,
its anchored frame and finally, at the lowest level, the figure title.
The cross-reference is leading back to the object that contains the
nested reference, the parent paragraph.
You may be able to make it work better if you created a new para tag
called, for instance, Anchor, that contains no text of its own but
does hold the anchor point that is now in the text paragraph...
But I think the only way to really fix it is to switch to an actual
automatically generated list of figures.
