You can insert a cross-reference to the caption right above the image.
Create a paragraph format for these cross-references that would use a
small font and white text.
Then, we you need cross-refs to the figure, insert cross-references to
this hidden paragraph, rather then to the caption.
It's a bit more work, but it looks nice in print, in HTML, and in PDF.

Hope that helps!
Anastasia
