  I don't understand what you mean by wrap text around a table. However,
when FM exports SGML (or XML), it exports the content of a single flow.
You are correct that any structured content, including tables, of structured
flows in other frames is not exported. An FDK client could be written to
export the content of the other frame within that of the main flow.

Again, I'm having trouble visualizing exactly what you want. Look at
different anchoring positions for the anchored frame containing the
images (e.g., run into paragraph, or at insertion point). If you
put the caption and graphic in the same FM paragraph, you can control
the alignment by setting the paragraph alignment and perhaps using
tabs. You might also look at side heads.
