Default HTML5 <figure> and <figcaption>

My office is (finally) updating to HTML5. We've run into a problem with figure and figcaption we're not sure how to handle.


<figure class="flright">
<figcaption class="captionblue top small"> Figure 9: Constant Tension Catenary System
<img src="page02_files/image012.png" alt="Picture shows an example of a constant tension catenary system which utilizes a counterweight system that pulls the overhead wires into constant tension as the wires heat up and expand, preventing the wires from sagging."><p><strong>Source: </strong><a href="http://www.railway-technology.com/uploads/newsarticle/647405/images/135796/large/3-auto-tension.jpg">http://www.railway-technology.com/</a></p>

The class="flright" is just a float: right.

The problem is with the <p> tag under the <img> tag. The text doesn't wrap the way the figcaption text does. (It's all display: table HTML5 doesn't allow 2 <figcaption> tags within 1 <figure> tag.

Is there a way (preferably with CSS) to get the <p> tag to "behave"?

Thanks, Dennis
