    HTML tables not rendering in XMetal 16

    I have an issue in the rendering of HTML tables which has worked successfully in Xmetal versions 5, 7 and 10 but does not work in XMetal 16 which we are now having to support. We have a custom XSD which includes an html table module, this module has been extended to include additional table element attributes and an extended table cell model. The curious thing is when I insert a table through the menu system it will render as a table, yet if I reload the document the rendering disappears and only the parent table element tags are displayed. Similarly, for data that includes HTML tables and are opened in XMetal 16 all I see are the table element tags.
    I have found similar issues on this forum with XMetal 11 and 12 yet applying the suggested fixes does not work, ie treating this as a semantic table model by allowing for the table model in the css and adding a table configuration to the ctm file (note that the table elements are not supported in the out-of-the-box ctm dtd which makes this update doubly difficult and I have had to borrow the structure from the DITA ctm and adjust accordingly)
    Can anyone offer a fix or a workaround and is there a latest version of the ctm dtd or even an xsd so we can have confidence in adjusting this doctype

    Hello, XML is the base of the website.

    XML is the base of the content and incorporates the HTML table model

    I have now discovered what is causing this issue. It is the fact that we have two schema models for table cells, one for the header and body cells and one for the footer cells. XMetal does not like this and refuses to format the table. When I change the schema to a single table cell model then the rendering of the table works

    This is an issue as we need to restrict what can appear in the footer cells. As a work around I have changed the schema to use a single table cell model. I then use XSLT to validate the elements within the footer cells when this data is checked back into the db, but this is far from perfect

    This has been enhanced to incorporate extra table element properties and a more complex table cell model.
