[l2h] Wrong figure numbers in figure captions when I attempted to have my figures automatically numbered using ~\ref..... commands in my .tex file

Hello.  I tried to automatically number figures using commands like "Fig.~\ref{....}" and in text and \label{...} commands within figure environments in my .tex file.  I might have tried to include figure captions within \caption and/or \parbox commands.  Anyhow, my figure numbers were incorrect in the figure captions.  Another variable is that I have been using both pdflatex and latex plus latex2html commands in recent weeks; so there is a question whether I was examining a Portable Document Format (.pdf) output file produced by a pdflatex command or a .html file produced by executing a latex2html command.  Recently I gave up on getting the figure numbers within captions correct by attempting to have the figures automatically numbered via the use of ~\ref{....} commands.---That is I numbered the figures myself everywhere within a .tex file.  Would someone please guide me or refer me to a guide of consistent \caption or \parbox commands together with ~\ref{...} in text and \label{...} commands within figure environments for automatic figure numbering in text that will enable both the figure numbers within figure captions and the figure numbers within text to be correct?  A desirable solution for the automatic numbering of figures within both the figure captions and the text of a document would be one which would work in a .tex file with either pdflatex or latex2html commands.

Here are the versions and/or dates and/or years of the relevant codes I found I have installed on my computer:

Code                Version                                                                                                                                                      Date or year
pdflatex            pdfTeX version 3.1415926-2.3-1.40.12 in TeX Live 2011 (I am not certain about the ending "12" in my notes.)
LaTeX2e                                                                                                                                                                            September 24, 2009
LaTeX2HTML    1.71                                                                                                                                                           2008

I have updated software in my installation of the openSUSE-12.2, Linux operating system a number of times since I had the above problem within recent weeks or months of time.  But based on the above dates, I suppose that the LaTeX2e and LaTeX2HTML versions I have been using during the past few months may been the above ones.
