[Tshwanelex-l] Lemma gender attribute

Hi Gregory,

A couple of points to check:

1. Make sure you add your new attribute (field) to the Lemma element 
specifically (i.e. in the DTD editor, select 'Lemma' (or 'Entry') in 
the left-most list when adding the attribute - your attribute should 
be in the attribute list there for that element)

2. I suspect this is probably the problem: The output order of 
fields can be adjusted independently of the 'structural order' of 
the data (this allows greater flexibility, but at the cost of a 
little complexity). If you go to Format/Styles, select the 'Output 
(display) order' tab at the top of the dialog, select the 'Lemma' 
element in the left-most list, then in the list with heading 'Child 
element/attribute', select your new attribute, and click 'Move up' 
until it appears above the Sense or just after the LemmaSign.

Let me know if it still doesn't work.
