Reply to: Validating CALS tables

I'm not sure that is a good example as the CALS table you have listed here is following the CALS specification. If the DTD you are using to validate your documents follows the CALS spec then XMetaL Author will not catch any validation errors (because this table is valid) and it will also render it with the first cell in both rows merged (as the CALS spec states). See attached image.

So, I guess this does mean this Schematron is performing checks that are specific to some additional rules that are otherwise OK according to the CALS spec?

Are you saying that oXygen flags usage of the @morerows attribute as an issue and that you want to create a Schematron for use with XMetaL Author that tells people not to use the @morerows attribute?
