# [texhax] How to suppress subfloat label

Hello all,

I am using the subfig package to insert subfigures in a document.  I would
like one of my figures to contain both a long caption and a short caption,
so that the long caption appears beneath the figure but the short caption
appears in the List of Figures.  My code looks like this:

\begin{figure}
\centering
\subfloat[ ... very long caption ... ]{\includegraphics...}
\caption{A short, manageable caption.}
\label{foo}
\end{figure}

This renders as follows:

-----------------

graphics

-----------------
(a) ... very long
caption .......

Figure 1: A short, manageable caption.

My question: is there any way to suppress the "(a)" subfigure label at the
beginning of the subfloat caption?  I would like to do this just for one
subfigure, not globally.
