## hvfloat – Rotating caption and object of floats independently

This package defines a macro to place objects (tables and figures) and their captions in different positions with different rotating angles within a float. All objects and captions can be framed. The main command is \hvFloat{float type}{floating object}{caption}{label}; a simple example is \hvFloat{figure}{\includegraphics{rose}}{Caption}{fig:0}. Options are provided to place captions to the right or left, and rotated. Setting nonFloat=true results in placing the float here.
