Hi, Don:

This is a little extra effort, but should solve your problem:

* Create a paragraph format for the caption that is the 
cross-reference source which appears at the top of the graphic. Set 
the text color White.

* Create a cross-reference to the white caption paragraph below the 
graphic; tag it with your standard caption paragraph format.

* Point cross-references in text to the white caption paragraph.
