Yet another newbie question

I'm using the SGML transformation extensions in Jade to convert text from
one DTD to another.

I want to convert:
	<sysobj type='somevalue'> ... </sysobj>
	<newsysobj newtype='somevalue'> ...</newsysobj>

I have the following entry in my dsssl spec:
	(element sysobj 
		(make element
			gi: "newsysobj"
			attributes: '(("newtype" (attribute-string "type")))

But I receive the following error message from Jade:
	"...invalid value for "attributes" characteristic".

Would someone please explain why I'm receiving this error? What is the
correct syntax for retrieving the attribute value from 'sysobj' and handing
it to 'newsysobj' as a string?
Thank you for your help.
