According to REVTeX 4.1 guide, the float placement option [H] will enable LATEX to break a float across pages. How can I get it worked?

\documentclass[preprint]{revtex4-1}
\usepackage{float}
\begin{document}
\title{title}
\date{\today}
\maketitle

\section{tables}

\begin{table}[H]

  • Sorry, they messed up -- big time. This info is wrong. – Johannes_B Sep 18 '17 at 17:24
  • The information is utterly wrong and they should know better. The table environment can never be split across pages. – egreg Sep 18 '17 at 17:25
