Tables, sheet music examples, images, and figures are numbered using Arabic numerals, each in its own series. N.B. each table, figure etc. must be referred to in text (cf. sheet music example 774). Figures, tables, and sheet music examples etc. are separately numbered in order from the beginning of the text to the end (FIGURE 1, FIGURE 2 etc.), not (generally) according to the chapters of the text.
The captions of figures are placed under the figure – since the idea is that the image speaks for itself. The captions of tables and sheet music examples are positioned above them. Captions are carefully written so that the figure and table can be read as they are, without scrutinizing the body text. If necessary, a source is included in the caption. The words FIGURE and TABLE are usually written in capital letters, italics, or bold in the caption. The recommended table width is the same as the text width.
