I too am stuck in specification hell. The specifier is ovenamored of 
stretching text and the like. I worked through that with the TeX/LaTeX macro 

 My immediate problem is with putting the 
caption of a table in a different font.  Currently I have:

\placefigure[here][tab:comp]{Comparison of Corporate and
Government Bond Portfolios} {
Currently I get the caption in bold but the string "Figure 2-1" is not in 

A second problem:
The designer asks for
Figure 2-1
Comparison of Corporate etc.
but I get:
Figure 2-1 Comparison of Corporate etc.

I can avoid \placefigure and hand code each caption of course but that 
deprives me of the ability to float the figures.
Unfortunately they brought in the designer after I had already started work 
(and cashed the deposit check.)

The first difficulty (typeface) is IMO the most critical.
