captioning on tables

Good morning Listers,

I am trying to add captions to tables to make an application which is already in production accessible. It is not coded well. They coded a fieldset, legend, and then the table. When I added the caption it was written to the screen. We put a class definition on it so it could be hidden with CSS. I tried to use the summary tag. It was pointed out that is deprecated in HTML5. I wanted to take out the legend, but that changed the look of the page.

Do any of you know what replaces the summary tag in HTML5? What are any other table options I can use?
