[texhax] marginpar command

floats cannot be used inside other floats. A \marginpar is a float and you are presumably using \caption inside another float

For non floating (but potentially overlapping marginpars) see the marginnote package

Subject: [texhax] marginpar command

Dear list,

I'm using the command "\marginpar" inside a caption but after
compilation latex gives me "! LaTeX Error: Float(s) lost." I used
"\protect\marginpar{bla bla}" but it did not change anything.

Please can anyone gives me an idea to how can I fix this error ?

Thanks a lot,

Dr. Mohamed Houssni
