Hi Rita,

'element' is something that neeeds to be declared as follows :
(declare-flow-object-class element
  "UNREGISTERED::James Clark//Flow Object Class::element")
Your second line is then supposed to be
        (make element gi: "HTML"
For details on James Clark's flow-object-classes see

Since HTML documents do not contain the BODY element
within the HEAD element you better write :
                 (make sequence
                        (make element
                         gi: "HEAD"
                        (make element
                         gi: "BODY"

'sequence' is a SOSOFO, read about SOSOFOs in Paul
Prescod's marvellous tutorial :at
