# PDFLatex tables are covering up text

I have a series of images that I'm displaying using a table environment. However, pdflatex places my table over the references portion of my paper.

I've tried [htb!] options for the table, and it doesn't seem to make much of a difference. I've also tried to use:

\usepackage{float}
\restylefloat{table}


with the [H] option, but that hasn't worked either.

Any ideas on how to prevent this from happening?

• I should also specify that this is document type is: \documentclass[iop]{emulateapj} -- which is a two column format.
