There are some positioning parameters for text block like table or image to place in a page.


Those characters in the square brackets are parameters to position.

Parameter Position
h Place the float here, i.e., approximately at the same point it occurs in the source text (however, not exactly at the spot)
t Position at the top of the page.
b Position at the bottom of the page.
p Put on a special page for floats only.
! Override internal parameters LaTeX uses for determining “good” float positions.
H Places the float at precisely the location in the LATEX code. Requires the float package. This is somewhat equivalent to h!.
