Subject [greenstone-users] mdoffset problem in List classifer
Hello all,

We are using a List classifier on a Hebrew PagedImage collection for a
browse of subjects at the section level. Since each section may have
multiple subjects, mdoffset is important. Here's a sample from our
.item file:

<PagedDocument>
<Metadata name="Title">Pioneers</Metadata>
<Metadata name="Volume">8</Metadata>
<Page pagenum="3017" imgfile="images/V08_002.jpg"
txtfile="text/V08_002.txt">
<Metadata name="Subject">?'????????, ??? (????????)</Metadata>
</Page>
[...]
<Page pagenum="3023" imgfile="images/V08_008.jpg"
txtfile="text/V08_008.txt">
</Page>
<Page pagenum="3024" imgfile="images/V08_009.jpg"
txtfile="text/V08_009.txt">
</Page>
<Page pagenum="3025" imgfile="images/V08_010.jpg"
txtfile="text/V08_010.txt">
<Metadata name="Subject">??-??????, ?????</Metadata>
<Metadata name="Subject">??????, ???? ???</Metadata>
</Page>
[...]

Problem is, when we build the collection, not all the nodes of the
classifier are getting mdoffset values assigned:

1;;;0;0;12;13;1;0;0;;;;1;0;18;1;13;0;0;0;0;0;0;1

Anyone seen this before? I didn't notice any obvious patterns in the
sections/metadata elements which failed.

Many thanks,
