Sorry Victor, that is not a good idea! You
should try to find out /why/ TeX does the things it does. In this case
it is forbidden (by the standard value of \textfraction) to put less
than 30 % text on a page with text and figures. Those
exclamationmark-versions of options are always an indication that the
user didn't understand what he is doing. You don't have to use floating
environments, you can even set a caption outside figure with
capt-off.sty. There is /no/ need for h! or H! or H or whatever.

Bonne chance!
