I have asked this question before, but I wanna try
one more time before I give up.

I want to pictures which are alike on the left and
right place, several times. I use the graphicxs
package for inclusions. Trial and error seems like
an endless job. Any suggestion is wellcome. This
should be a known problem that should be solved,
I hope.




1. Q: [latex] How to place a figure (table) in exact place at the text?


Suppose that there is some LaTeX document with tables or graphics. I want tables
to appear (textually ) exactly at the place where I define them and not at some
random place (usually top of the page).


some text

\caption{\Interesting table}
\begin{tabular}{|l|l|} \hline
        field1          & field2    \\ \hline\hline

more text

I want the table to be printed between "some text" and "more text" lines. What
is the proper way to achieve this?

I tried to play with \topfraction, \bottomfraction and \textfraction but didn't
achieve anything.

Thanks for any help.
