Using the <caption> tag

Description

The caption tag is only used to provide a caption for a figure, subfigure, or a table. You can enter a somewhat lengthy description of the figure with the caption tag. In contrast, using the title tag you can enter only a brief title or label that appears above a figure.

<figure id="fig1">
