Summary0001222: Table with a (text) gives odd error
DescriptionIf we label a column a in a table, Inform gives an acceptable error.

If we label it a (text), it gives a confusing error. While the IDE does a relatively good job of giving workarounds, and an experienced programmer can guess, the "this should never happen" text pushed me to report this.
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
"as" by Andrew Schultz

room 1 is a room.

table of junk
a (text)
Additional InformationHopefully this won't waste much time if a similar bug has already been fixed.

Full error: "An internal error has occurred: registered a meaning which was only an article. The current sentence is 'table of junk a (text) "a"' ; the error was detected at line 571 of "Chapter 10/Excerpt Meanings.w". This should never happen, and I am now halting in abject failure."

Possibly a duplicate of [^] . ("a" with no name following causes an assert at the same line.)

Yes, this is better handled now.
