/ Chuck Darney <cdarney@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> was heard to say:
| I'm building a table from many document fragments.  The resulting table
| is in proper format, but the fragments look like:
| <fragdef>CAQRT002.001</fragdef>
| <row><entry align="left" valign="top">Employer
| Contribution</entry></row>
| I use the "fragdef" tag to identify the text block (more for future use
| than necessity.  The tag ends up in multiple places throughout the
| table.  When I use Jade, I get the following message:
| cgideliv.dsl:941:13:E:2nd argument for primitive "ancestor" of wrong
| type: "#<unknown object 8063364>" not a singleton node list
| Line 941 is in the modular DOCBOOK dsl where:
| (row (ancestor "ROW" entry))
| is in the:
| (define (cell-column-number entry overhang)
| Is there a way top avoid the error?  do I need to delete my "fragdef"
| tags?  It works if I do, but I will need them.  Perhaps there's a better
| way to ID all of the document framents I'll be using.

Hmmm.  You must have modified the DocBook DTD to allow <fragdef> in
tables.  But if <fragdef>s are outside of rows, I'm surprised the
stylesheet is bombing where it is.

Can you send me your DocBook customization layer (i.e., your DTD) and
a small instance that causes the problem?
