Hum, now that I see your example again, I understand that I haven't  
adressed at all what you meant.

Well, indeed that's a limitation of <figure>: it can't span across  
different table cells. But on the other side, I don't think I'd call  
"Mona Lisa" a caption in your example. It's certainly a title  
however, and I think the table makes the association pretty clear by
