If you use FOP, this could be about incomplete support for keep-*
properties. See
http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/compliance.html#fo-property-keepsbreaks-se
ction.

Other processors (such as XEP and AntennaHouse XSL Formatter) have much
better support for keep-*, which means that figures and their titles will be
kept together and end up on the same page.

There is no code for handling 'List of Figures' for articles in the standard
stylesheets. But you can customize the template with match="article" in
fo/component.xsl. Immediately before the <apply-templates/> element, add the
following:

<xsl:if test="contains($toc.params, 'figure') and .//figure">
 <xsl:call-template name="list.of.titles">
  <xsl:with-param name="titles" select="'figure'"/>
  <xsl:with-param name="nodes" select=".//figure"/>
 </xsl:call-template>
</xsl:if>

This will create a List of Figures immediately after the TOC. If you want
the List of Figures to appear at the very end of the article, put the code
above after the <apply-templates/>.
