IDL problem

I'm now struggling with respec with the following code:

         <h3 id="interface-textdecoder">Interface <code 
         <pre class="idl">dictionary <dfn 
id="textdecoderoptions">TextDecoderOptions</dfn> {
   boolean fatal = false;

It gives an error message: "No IDL definition in element." and various 
things then fail to work on the page (eg. no TOC).

If I change class="idl" to class="idlx", the page draws as expected, 
except, I suspect, for the styling that should appear at that point.

I looked in the reference section of the documentation but found nothing 

Please can someone tell me what to do?


PS: I'm really starting to wonder whether I should reconsider using 
respec. It's so brittle!  The last three documents I've tried to publish 
would have been published *much* faster if I'd just used a text editor. 
  Do we have adequate tests in place, and are they used after people 
tweak the code?
