I just ran those files (the way they are on texlive6 through pdflatex and they compile there without any problems). to identify that better one would need to trace that error a bit closer (eg putting \tracingall just in front) to see what exactly triggers the error.  > BTW are there new developments concerning this stuff (OR, grid design,  > etc.)? other than the frontmatter stuff (which is also more than a year old) nothing has happened from my end as I had and have private troubles that kept me from doing much LaTeX related work. frank
