    Hi Els,

    It says that a length must bear a unit specifier. Do you mean
    161.5 pt? 161.5 px? 161.5 mm?

    > What has changed between the XEP versions?

    Expression syntax checks have become more strict. In XEP 3.2,
    the only length value that does not require unit specifier is 0.
    All other lengths should be expressed in pt, pc, in, mm, cm, or px.

    Your code is OK; but you should care to get the correct dimensionality.
    Something like this:

    <xsl:attribute name="start-indent">
      (323pt - <xsl:value-of select="$totalcolwidth"/>pt) div 2
