Details

The figure caption function is basically the one designed by Max Gordon (see http://gforge.se/2014/01/fast-track-publishing-using-knitr-part-iii/.

The table caption function is an implementation of the ideas of DeanK (see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15258233/using-table-caption-on-r-markdown-file-using-knitr-to-use-in-pandoc-to-convert-t) combined with Max Gordon's function.

Value
