Guess I am lucky; I have always done it that way since I felt if it was in
print, it should not be bracketed. I never knew better. LOL

We have a slightly new way of handling captions in books now. Rather than
placing the entire thing in square brackets, just place the word “caption” in
square brackets. This is because the caption text comes from the
author/publisher and not from us. If they are in the middle of the text they
can be preceded and followed with three asterisks.
This is similar to image descriptions, but since we are creating these image
descriptions ourselves, the entire thing should be surrounded by brackets,
whereas we are not creating the text of the caption. Let me know if anyone
has questions!
