RE: [xep-support] Problem generation PDF/A-1a compliant PDFs

Check this in the documentation:

"Adobe Acrobat's 'Accessibility check' plug-in fails if some table cells do
not have a table row as the parent. Make sure that all table cells in your
XSL-FO file are within table rows."

This may be the problem.

Subject: [xep-support] Problem generation PDF/A-1a compliant PDFs

I'm trying to generate a PDF/A-1a document for a customer of ours.
I've put the following statements in the xep.xml
<option name="ENABLE_ACCESSIBILITY" value="true"/>
And in the XSL-FO I put in the following processing instructions after the
xml pi and before the root element:
<?xep-pdf-pdf-a pdf-a-1a?>
But when I check the PDF conformance, it gives me an error on {THead} and
Is there something special I should do when I use tables in PDF/A-1a
Do I have to put in some extra attributes on the tables?
Please advice me how I can resolve this problem.
BTW, I'm using XEP 4.18 on a Windows 7 machine.
And I'm checking PDF/A-1a conformance with Acrobat Professional 9.0
Thanx in advance,
