I spent a few hours googling and trying random things but am not able to get 
figure captions looking the way I want them.  Basically, I'd like long captions 
to be left aligned as a framed chunk of text, similar to this post here:


Or if this formatting works...

How it currently looks:
Figure 1  This is a caption that extends
to multiple lines.

What I'm trying to get:
Figure 1  This is also a caption that
                 extends to multiple lines.

I was able to produce what I wanted with an aligned \framed command, but the 
width of the caption and the width of the framed box had to be set for each 
figure, which is less than ideal.

I'm hoping that there is a way to adjust the amount of indent for the text of 
the caption so that I can 'push' all the lines after the first one to line up 
with it?

Thanks much,
