Author Topic: Xmetal Essentials 6: Tables not showing entrys, only showing tgroup element  (Read 1817 times)

I had an engineer report that, all of a sudden, he is not able to view his CALS tables. Now, all that is displayed is the tgroup element. No rows or entrys are displayed.

Has anyone seen this before? Is there a setting amiss he might have accidentally hit?

Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

The only setting that purposely causes CALS (and HTML) tables to render differently is this INI setting:

tags_on_graphical_tables = false

That tells XMetaL Author to not render CALS or HTML tables as tables, but instead to render them as if they were just any other group of elements (so that you see the opening and closing tags for every table element). Sounds like this is not what your engineer is seeing.

I suspect there must be something mucked up with the markup for a portion of the table. What happens when they validate the document?
