I can confirm that.

[[Attach:greensox.jpg -> Main.HomePage]] | %div width=200px% this is a 
very long caption ... and it goes on and on

works on pmwiki.org (beta55) but not on my installation (beta54). If the 
line starts with the WikiStyle I also get the correct result with beta54.

It works, but not the way I have expected ;-) The width argument gets 
applied to the <img...> tag, which is also nice. In order to set the 
width of the surrounding element, I came up with

%block width=100px% %lfloat width=100px% Attach:greensox.jpg | this is a 
very long caption ... and it goes on and on

Thanks a lot,
