[l2h] Fails to number figures: bogus "arguments too complex" erro r.

Thanks for that, but \times is not causing the problem, it's ok to leave it unprotected. The only problem is my \rms and \peak commands. If I remove them all is well. I have not come across problems with built in latex commands needing protection. 

In fact the problem may not be protection at all by sizing commands such as \footnotesize appearing in captions. See my previous message.

And latex itself has no problems either with $\times$ or \rms appearing in captions, so, is latex being forgiving of my sloppy code?
