Howdy,

I'm afraid it isn't clear what you mean? If I use

\begin{figure}
\centering
This is a Figure
\caption{A caption with an equation: $$x^{2}+y^{2}=z^{2}$$.}
\end{figure}

(Note: I use the fixltx2e package to fix up $$...$$). I don't see a problem. Are you creating a list of figures?

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
