Many thanks for your reply, Wolfgang.

These are my defaults for tables in the document:


The following avoids the reported break, but it doesn’t split the table:

\startxmlsetups xml:table:split

If I add "split" to \startplacetable, I get the same \prevdepth error in
the second run.

What am I doing wrong here? (To avoid an error, I get other errors.)

Many thanks for your help,
