As has been said here before: No question is dumb.

Actually, LaTeX may very well be ignoring your !h -- LaTeX has its own wierd notions of just what 'here' means: generally (even with the !) it means 'here, should you feel so inclined.'

You could consider using:


which allows a 'H' option when really does mean: ' Here, and nowhere else -- and I really mean it!'
