In any case, it is not lethal: I have 18 newarray's in  
CheckableItems.sty like

Which is function?

and the following file


%\caption{RAF Checkable Items}
		&	1
		&	\ChapXIV(1)
[900 rows in all]


The only thing I have noticed so far is that the caption produces an  
error while it didn't before I moved the actual checkable items from  
the table to the style sheet and replaced them by \ChapXIV(1).

But then it could be due to something else and, right now, I don't  
have the time to investigate. The only thing I was going to try was  
to change \array by \Array but I found 5 occurrences of \array so  
left things for later.

Grateful regards
