  The float package

This package improves the interface for defining floating objects such
as figures and tables in LaTeX.  It adds the notion of a `float style'
that governs appearance of floats.  New kinds of floats may be defined
using a \newfloat command analogous to \newtheorem.  This style option
also incorporates the functionality of David Carlisle's style option
`here', giving floating environments a [H] option which means `PUT IT
HERE' (as opposed to the standard [h] option which means `You may put
it here if you like').

Run `float.ins' through LaTeX to produce float.sty from float.dtx.
Run `float.dtx' through LaTeX to produce the documentation.

float – Improved interface for floating objects

Improves the interface for defining floating objects such as figures and tables. Introduces the boxed float, the ruled float and the plaintop float. You can define your own floats and improve the behaviour of the old ones.

The package also provides the H float modifier option of the obsolete here package. You can select this as automatic default with \floatplacement{figure}{H}.
