Reply to: Inserting a table from the table menu results in an invalid table

Ok, the only thing in the ctm file related to the table element is the following:

   
      table
             
       
       
     
   

I deleted my ctm file and let xmetal generate it. No change when I insert a table.

I have customized the DTD (ours is based on DocBook 4.5). For tables we add an attribute. I tried removing the table stuff from our dtd and reopening xmetal. Still no table titles when I insert a table.

How does xmetal know to add a title to tables? I assume it's because it sees that title is a required child of table. Title is required…if I try to validate using one of its titleless tables, it gives a validation error.

Thanks,
David
