comment LaTeX missing reference
@ChristianHupfer I didn't express myself well. I didn't mean that I would increment the counter myself, just that it gets incremented as a side effect of executing \caption{}. The style I'm thinking of (figures and text are interspersed, with no references or captions) is a variation on using package wrapfig.

comment LaTeX missing reference
I think of the caption as optional, and indeed in some styles, it is. But it still makes sense to increment the counter within \caption{}. If the caption is omitted, it's assumed that the figure's location will be rigidly monitored and that the reference to the figure will be informal.

comment LaTeX missing reference
@Kurt Argh... I stopped using latex for a few months, and this happens. But somehow I do not recall this order was ever necessary. (I omitted to mention that I had tried removing the caption altogether, which didn't help.) Has it always been like this? In any case, thanks. I can delete it if people vote that this question is trivial.

The third solution is perfect. For other examples I sometimes needed to modify the boxsep, not just the font size, to avoid duplication of crosses. (This duplication is handy by itself to signal something is not right.)

@Au101 OK, OK agreed. What sans serif would you use to hang around your surroundings? It can't be too formal lest the place looks like a (modern art) museum taking its inspiration from typography. I'd use the ancient IBM typewriter font, if I could, and if it remains easily readable from a distance if sufficiently enlarged. You make a good point, and so suggestions for letting the message through rather than the messenger are welcome.

@Zarko Well, I did specify from the beginning that it's for the use of someone learning a foreign alphabet {\em or language} :). My example worked with the "language" part (i.e. words, not letters), but none of the four solutions offered nailed it. I preferred in this case to avoid a sequel question and just keep everything in one place.

@DavidCarlisle Thanks. You answered the third part. I updated the question.

You're right. The two issues are really orthogonal.

But since the objective in this case is to print rather than to include in another document, doesn't it make more sense not to use "standalone"?

Tightened by removing the vertical space, as in egreg's answer.

The image you show is indeed what I'm after, but you used neither \begin{subfigure}[t] nor \subcaptionbox.
