{{figureCaption}}...caption content here{{/figureCaption}}

... any content here...

With caption after the illustration:

... any content here...

{{figureCaption}}...caption content here{{/figureCaption}}

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Quisque tincidunt at nunc lobortis vulputate. Phasellus tempus, urna eget commodo lacinia, sapien orci elementum nibh, ac condimentum metus quam vel mauris. Aliquam vehicula vehicula fermentum. In sodales augue eu ex accumsan tincidunt. Sed pellentesque nunc sit amet accumsan posuere. Orci varius natoque penatibus et magnis dis parturient montes, nascetur ridiculus mus. Pellentesque congue rhoncus tortor vel tincidunt. Nunc tortor nisi, efficitur non nunc vitae, semper tincidunt libero. Suspendisse diam augue, euismod quis molestie nec, consequat sollicitudin mi. Phasellus sit amet sapien ante. Suspendisse ac nulla in orci efficitur porttitor sed nec mi.



And if you apply some custom CSS you can get:


Table figure

|= Headcell1 |= Headcell2
| cell1 | cell2

{{figureCaption}}Table caption{{/figureCaption}}
