I am not understanding.

I normally do:

\begin{float}
\begin{tabular}{}
\end{tabular}
\caption{Blah}\label{t:blah}
\end{float}

You are saying that I put this identical material into x.tex and say:

\afterpage{\clearpage\input{x.tex}}

This will correctly give me the float style, the caption, and the
numbering scheme of float.sty?
