I am using a style sheet that allows me 6 x 8.5 inches (width by height) of
space (1.25 inches margins all around - American paper).

I have a series of tables each of which is 6.5 inches in height from the top
of the table to the bottom of the caption.  Each page, there are eight of
them is formatted as follows:

\subsection{blah}
\begin{table}
.
.
.
\end{table}
\newpage

I want to have a subsection heading followed by the table on each page,
however when I compile, the subsection headings are consecutively placed one
to a page, then the tables are consecutively placed one to a page -- net
result twice as many pages and not in the required layout.

Any suggestions?
