note that the latex companion is an _old_ book, and documents the
state of things as it was in 1993, before latex 2e was actually
released (aiui, the authors used a pre-release of latex 2e to develop
the book).

in particular, floatfig (which is what the companion talks about) has
long since been superseded by the package floatflt.  are you in fact
using floatfig? -- if so, it may be worth updating.

i've (just) moved floatfig to the obsolete/ tree on ctan.  ctan file
info/companion.ctan has long pointed you at floatflt as a replacement
for floatfig
