I am trying to create a table with the middle cell merged vertically. I
am trying to draw bottom lines for the left and right columns:


Alabama    13.3     13.5
-------             -----
Alaska	   17.8      18.8

Here is my table:


\placetable[here][tab:insurance]{Percentage of People without health
insurance in US}
\starttable[|l w(30mm)|l|l|]
\HL
\VL State     \VL 3-year average(2001-2003) \VL 2-year average(2001-2002)  \VL\SR
\HL[4]
\VL Alabama   \VL 13.3                     \VL 13.5                        \VL\FR
\DL \DC \DL     \DR
\VL Alaska    \VL 17.8                     \VL 18.8                        \VL\MR
\HL
\VL Arizona   \VL 17.3                     \VL 16.9                        \VL\LR
\HL
\stoptable

\stoptext

I am getting the following error message:

! Extra alignment tab has been changed to \cr.
<template> \endtemplate 
                        
\!ttLongHrule ->\omit \span \omit \span 
                                        \!ttShortHrule 
\next ->&\normalTABLElongrule 
                              &
\complexTableDL ...handleTABLEerror \fi \fi \next 
                                                  \fi 
\complexorsimpleTable ...fi \c!Table #1\endcsname 
                                                  #2
l.14 \DL \DC \DL      \DR

What am I doing wrong? 

Thanks
