Re: [NTG-context] splitted xtable with repeating headers and placetable

Wolfgang,

Below is what I think is the bare minimum to explain this question
(sorry for not doing it right from the beginning...)

As I said, with the code as it is below, the header is not repeated
after the first page, but the table is in the right place.

Replacing "split=yes" by "split=repeat" makes the header repeat
correctly but puts the beginning of the table on the next page, leaving
the first page nearly completely blank.

In both cases, the "header=repeat" setting has no influence at all on
the behaviour and can be omitted without changing the results.

As I read in some other posts, sometimes putting the table in a float
can help, so I tried this (by removing the 3 "%" in the code below), but
there seems to be a conflict with the figure in the page header, and it
stops with an error message.

However, replacing the figure in the page header by a normal text
suddenly solves the problem: putting "split" in the setupfloat and
"header=repeat" in the setupxtable gives me a table with repeated
headers that starts exactly where I want it to start. Apparently in this
case, the "headers=repeat" is necessary. Unfortunately, I need a company
logo up in the page header, which is what causes the error for which I
have no explanation.
