There are some journals that require a submission to have markers  
within the document where figures/tables will be placed (e.g., Figure  
2 about here) but want the figures/tables submitted at the end of the  
document. The endfloat package allows you to make those markers while  
saving the floats and adding them to the end of the document.

Good Luck,
