highly creative user error? I've discovered/worked out that I had managed to
create some code that validated ... until I tried to convert the topic.
(specifically, I had set the <status> attribute on a <row> instead of including
a <p> inside an <entry> - an exceptional case of the general disclaimer about
conditions, profiles and tables)
Anyway, thanks (again) to your initial advice about regenerating the underlying
.ditaval files I now have the output (and the source files) I want to work with.
Have a good weekend! you've earned it.

--> I'm sorry but we cannot spend more time helping you with this.
After all the problems you had, the best is probably to give up the idea of
using the "Easy profiling" add-on. From now, you should stick to plain DITAVAL
To help you decide to give up the idea of using the "Easy profiling"
add-on, may be we, XMLmind, will abandon the "Easy profiling" add-on in the
future as this add-on seems to be unusable without a lot of support.
--> Needless to say that I cannot reproduce this problem you describe
using XXE V7.1, <XXE_install_dir>/demo/dita-sample.ditamap and
The only ideas which come to my mind are:
1) This works in v7.1 and not in the older version you are currently using.
2) You have copied changeTracking.profiles from one place to spica/ and
forgot to also copy the automatically generated .ditaval files which
were found in changeTracking_files/
You can recreate these "automatic" .ditaval files at any time by opening
changeTracking.profiles and using "File|Save" or "File|Save As".
However, it's probably not (2) because in this case, XXE reports a lot
of errors and the document conversion fails.
