Hi Adam,

It does look slightly out of whack that your xf:repeat starts before the 
tbody, but the closing tag
is before the closing tag of the tbody?  This would seem to be not 
well-formed XML, and may
be why the Novell processor is refusing to handle it.  Is this just a

Can the Novell plugin do repeats within tables?

Dear All,

I have a repeat within a table i.e. the repeat creates table rows. This
works fine in Firefox but simply does not seem to work in the Novell
Xforms plugin.

For example this works in Firefox but simply doesn't in the Novell
plugin (in fact it only seems to find the @name for the root element)

<table style="text-align: left; width: 100%; text-align: left;
vertical-align: top;" cellSpacing="1" cellPadding="2" border="1">
                                                 <xf:repeat id="r1" 
  <tr style="width: 100%">
                 <td style="width: 50%;
background-color: rgb(255, 255, 102); text-align: left; vertical-align:
top; ">
<xf:label>Classname: </xf:label>
                 <td style="width: 50%;
text-align: left; vertical-align: top;">
id="classname" style="" ref="mif:class/mif:annotation" />
  <xf:repeat id="r2" style=""
<xf:output ref="@name">
style="width: 50%; text-align: left; vertical-align: top;">
<xf:textarea id="classname" ref="mif:annotation/*" />

Does the Novell plugin not handle model elemetns correctly?
