Summary0000572: A blank table with parenthetical kind definitions next to column titles for non-numeric, non-text kinds won't compile
DescriptionBesides kinds of values, this also fails for (a thing), (an animal), (a person), (a container) and so on. The only tables for which this works are ones whose columns consist solely of numbers and texts, including indexed texts.
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
A trait is a kind of value.

Table 1
believer (a trait)	
with 10 blank rows

There is a room.
Additional InformationThis is the report produced by Inform 7 (build 6G60) on its most recent run through:


Problem. Brackets are only allowed in table column names when giving the kind of value which will be stored in the column. So 'poems (indexed text)' is legal, but not 'poems (chiefly lyrical)'.
TagsNo tags attached.
Effect(serious) Compiler rejects valid code
