Subject: RE: Floating figures and tables was RE: question about overrides

> Floating figures and tables are useful for automating page breaks, but I
too have encountered people who insist that the figure must always
immediately follow the reference. Can anyone help me understand where this
rule originated?

I don't know where the rule came from. Probably from the same people who
said there needs to be lots of white space.

I generally follow the usual tech doc rules, but I know, too, that other
kinds of publications don't follow them at all and their readers do fine.
There's very little white space in books yet people have managed to learn
from books for a few years. Magazines place illustrations every which where,
but their readers manage to understand them. Newspapers and magazines even
use, gasp!, multi-column layouts.
