Floating Element Group

Container element for floating objects (figures, tables, text boxes, graphics, etc.) that occur within a book, book part, or book part wrapper. Occurs outside of the narrative flow of any book or book part.


Some publishers like to collect all the floating objects (such as tables and figures) at the end of a book or book part rather than interspersing them throughout the document where they are referenced. The <floats-group> element is not part of the narrative flow of a book or book part; rather, it holds graphical and tabular resources used in the body, back matter, etc. At the book level, floating groups are placed within the back matter of the book (<book-back>). Book parts such as chapters (<book-part>) may hold their own floats groups in their back matter (<back>).
